I have a couple Yukon Outfitters hammocks with bugnets, camping in Florida it is a must have feature. I am planning on adding a ridgeline to the setup so I can achieve a more consistent hang.
I am thinking of making an adjustable Ridgeline, so that I can adjust on the fly as necessary. I figure the way to go is just a big long Whoopie Sling, attached with Soft Shackles so I can easily remove it if need be.
The hammock is 105 inches long, I read somewhere that the ridge line target is 83% the length of the hammock. That gives me a ridge line of over 87 inches ... 4" soft shackles on each end, 79" is the "target". I am thinking of a whoopie with a minimum of 70" and a maximum of 90". That will give me a big long wide range of adjustable hang. Does this sound reasonable? Being a newb I am taking a shot in the dark on the length here.
