    All the pictures I see show the attachment between the forestay and the mast. I am assuming this is a sloop rig. I don't know how well this would work when tacking. I can see you coming about and all of a sudden going swimming!!!

    When it goes over their heads, it really doesn't matter how high it is.

    Would've been funny to see the next picture, of fishing him out of the water.

    I'd assume you wouldn't try to hang your hammock on deck while under way unless your boat could safely accomodate it.

    Are you sure that's a hammock and not the spinnaker :^)
    I'll have to experiment. I can probably attach a biner to the mainsail and either figure a way to hook to the Genoa or use a pole and support it three or four ways. I'll experiment and let everyone know what the solution is.

    And, yes, I do like trees. Sailing with my girlfriend is what allows me into the woods from time to time :^ )

    If you examine that picture carefully I think you can see they are running with the wind from the position of the jib/genoa. Would be a pretty funny sequence though.
