Ridgeline snapped on my girlfriend while she was in my Explorer Ultralight. My fault, I hung it between two trees that were too far apart and I had cranked down the cinch buckles entirely too tight. Anyway the ridgeline bonked her in the head, startled her, switched on her grumpy mode for the next hour or so. She doesn't trust the spectra at all now, so I've got 12' of Amsteel Grey with which to replace the ridgeline.
I'm not too good with knots, and looking at what's left of the broken spectra I'm stumped as to how to go about doing this. I'm at the foot end of the hammock and so far I have the Amsteel threaded through the HH wrap and looped around the suspension line (in my case, Spyderline which is prussik'd around cinch buckles).
Like this, only imagine Amsteel grey there instead of that loop of stock black spectra:
What do I do next? I've searched a ton of threads on ridgelines, mini-biners, figure-8 knots, stopper knots, and more and my head's spinning. I explained to the ol' lady the mini-biner set up that some folks had rigged up, which made the ridgeline detachable so that you can sit in the HH like a chair, but she doesn't want that. She wants one continuous ridgeline identical to the stock setup. Me and my pea-sized brain could use a little help from HF here...
