    Screwed up a couple times. Now I can make a set of slings in about a half hour or less. Just added to my explorer ultralight. Thanks for all the tips.

    Thanks for the excellent video, it was simple and clear just the way I need it. Now my Hennessy Expedition is easy to setup and adjust.

    I put the knot covers and snake skins back on, and tied the stock Hennessy tarp anchors on the stationary side of the loop (I might run a separate line for the tarp someday). Also using tree straps with a marlin spike hitch with the whoopie slings. It all works good together.

    Thanks again Everyone for all the info... this video, whoopie slings, and locked brummel tutorials.

    Hi Luke. I probably started with 12 - 14 feet per end. That would make your slings in the neighborhood of 6 feet depending on length of loops, burys and attaching to the hammock.

    I just need to say how much I love this thread, I don't even close the window I have it open in. It's superbly explained and demonstrated, easy to do after a couple glasses of wine. I almost wish I had more hammocks to do this to.
