    VIDEO: HH to Whoopie Conversion

    Hello folks. I made a little "whoopie sling" conversion video today.
    You can see it here: Whoopie Sling Conversion



    I hope you find it useful!

    Thanks,

    Looks great!

    Question about the stitching on the closed eye...

    Is it necessary to run the stitches several inches down the bury as shown or will several stitches close to the the entry point suffice?

    For that matter, are the stitches in the closed eye necessary at all in this application since the bury is wrapped as part of the knot on the hammock?

    Thanks for the video. I like your wire fish-tape.
    I ride a recumbent.
    I like to HAM it up on the CW.
    I use Linux.
    I play go.
    Of course I sleep in a hammock!

    Rug.

    Hang On!

    Great video demonstration. I'm new to whoopie slings but did a lot of eye splices in braided nylon rope in scouts. Very nice touch with the backsplice. I want to convert my HH over to this system for easy of set up. Is that Amsteel Blue? 3/16"? Thanks for sharing.

    Just a couple stitches will suffice. Even though its burried in the Hennessey, I would still lock it either with stitching or a Brummel.

    WoW that turned out really good Ken ... nicely done. Like the music too!

    That camera rig does the trick pal!
    Think I like the idea of more stiches to lock it ... personally.
    That wire rig works great.

    This really makes the whole Whoopie rig clear and understandable! Well done pal.

    Nice video with a fun soundtrack.

    And you even gave me credit for how to attach the whoopie to a Hennessy. Thanks.
