    You asked about lie. I am a predominant side sleeper and I'm 6'2" 250+. I am a nightly sleeper in a DIY double layer hammock. I wind up sleeping banana in a ball by the end of the night. I would also bodge together a quick gathered end single layer hammock try it for a while. There can be a lot of tweaking on suspension and ridgeline to get you're perfect comfy. It seems like for me the ridgeline length can make a huge difference. Good luck!

    I'm with you, dude. I started making hammocks so I could get off the ground at Cub Scout outings. It was slow to catch on, but this past weekend a few of the other Dads were there sporting hammocks (all store bought). I've made several styles of hammock and my favorite for side sleeping is the WBBB variety. The foot box really does make a difference.

    Re: Black on Black DIY hammock with no-see-um netting

    Also been looking at zing it and lash it for odds and end stuff and possibly a tarp when this is done but have color issues closest thing i could find to black was the gray lash it :screwy: i think all ropes and lines should be made in black also its not th 2.2mm its the 1.75mm not sure i want any smaller than 2.2mm

    Croycrabtree, I'm sorry for the comment. It wasn't helpful in anyway what so ever. Guess I just came across your thread at the wrong time (bad mood), and typed before I thought. Will you forgive me?
