    finished, but still have questions

    I finished and hung today for the first time. The hammock is comfortable, much more then any tent. So here's the question, when I hang it, it hangs a little crooked. that is the opening doesn't quite face up. Is this normal, and if not what do I do to do about it? Thank you.

    A picture would help. It could be that your fabric wasn't quite rectangular or that you got a little more of one side in your whipping. I could also just be that your suspension lines are not centered with the hammock body.

    When you're in it, it will hang just like it should. I know it's easy for me to say, but don't let it bother you...it's a non-issue.
