    As a good tip, check out Amsteel line for suspension.
    I use amsteel and two 330lb luggage straps for suspension

    Amsteel

    Good idea, waiting for UPS today, ENO hammock will be here.
    I am going to watch for Redden marine discount , signed up for their email letter, and order Zing-It and Amsteel. They are the cheapest ones on line and get 540' of Zing, and some 7/64s amsteel sell what i don't need for my cost.
    Figured my cost for Zing at about .16 or .17 per ' before discount so well see.
    I was a yacht capt. for over 20 years so splicing double braid is no problem. In fact I have fids and pushers for Sampson up to 1 1/2 " . Have to make something for the small stuff. Lots of instructions on the forum.
    Thanks for the info.

    Welcome to HF.

    I'd love to take you up on your invitation to come and visit you, but y'all are just too far away from everything. I mean, I thought Franklin NC was the middle of nowhere, but you two have that one beat by a mile. Congratulations on selecting one of the most remote places on the east coast.
