    Hammocks are changing the world! Or at least boat stores in Nashville...

    So, I called my local West Marine to see if they had AmSteel in stock. The lady who answered the phone immediately asks "Is this for a hammock?" LOL Cracked me up. She said she started carrying AmSteel in the store just because of people looking for it for whoopie slings. She also said that she sells more of it for hammocking than boating by far.

    Just thought I'd pass this story along... I found it amusing, and thought other people might, too.

    And FWIW, they have silver/gray in stock. I'll be going by tomorrow.

    They'll price-match what Redden Marine sells it for (with the HammockForums discount), so make sure you show that to them and you'll get a pretty good discount on it there, plus the joy of instant gratification.

    Sweet! Thanks for the heads up. How do I show what Redden Marine sells it for with an HF discount?

    If I remember correctly, you go to their web site, place your order in the cart and there should be a location for a coupon code at checkout. I think the code was Hammock. But I could be mistaken.

    Oh, ok. Google to the rescue. Found this link.

    Even just having them pricematch to $0.23/ft will save me $5 since I'm planning on picking up 100ft.

    which West Marine store in Nashville?
    'Classic.' A book which people praise and don't read. ― Mark Twain

    Who cares about showers, gourmet food, using flush toilets. Just keep on walking and being away from it all.

    There are times that the only way you can do something is to do it alone.
