    Yup, that's exactly how i was thinking of doing it when i go to put the whoopie slings on it. Thanks, guys! Big help

    OK, WB Eldorado owners, one more question:
    How long are the whoopie slings that you guys put on? I seem to need shorter whoopies with larger tree straps (PNW trees, ya' know). Anyway, what are you guys using?

    I'm pretty sure mine were made using 13' lengths of cord for each whoopie. So that's a 6 foot sling, give or take.

    Maybe Brandon could "go retro" and make a few El Dorados just for old time's sake? There does seem to be a demand for them.

    See previous comments about the patent debate with Hennessy. That's a can of worms.

    Ummm ok then change of plan. Maybe they could be restyled and redesigned, Kind of like the new Volkswagen Beetle (engine moved from back to front), but then that's a can of worms too. There's no reliving the past I guess...
