I've made 3 hammocks over the past 20 months or so and each of them is a different length. In the comments on my "How Greg Makes a Hammock" video I asked if it would be useful to show how the different hammock lengths effect the comfort of the hammock. I got a resounding "Yes Please" to that question so here it is.
The 3 hammocks are:
#1: 9 1/2 feet of material. 96" ridge line
#2: 10 1/2 feet of material. 106" ridge line
#3: 12 1/2 feet of material. 116" ridge line
I was surprised at how much the length of the hammock changes the apparent width of the hammock. I hope you find this helpful.
