I am looking to create a hammock for a friend who would like to lay in it with his wife sometimes. They are both under 160 lbs and are also below 5' 8" tall.
I went to wally world and picked out some fabric that I have no doubt will hold them. In fact, it is probably going to be overkill because I am using some heavy packcloth-like material outside with something else on the inside that is more comfortable to lay on. I think the packcloth is very firm and won't stretch much, but we'll see.
My question is:
Would a ~58" hammock be wide enough for these two people?
Also, is adding length a good idea? I have about 11' to work with.
