I am excited to break out my new hammock for some camping soon! I am planning on making some Whoopie slings and connect them to a strap.

My question is, I am what you would call a larger individual (300 pounds but dropping, down 25 pounds this year!) and do NOT want to end up sleeping on the ground!

Would the 7/64" Amsteel Blue hold up my heft OK, or should I be going to the 1/8" version?

If the thicker rope is required for the thicker guy, how do you calculate what the burries would be in the 1/8" Amsteel. I would guess that you would need longer burries, but that is just a guess!

Thanks in advance!
