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 Opie. Oh yeah, that conversion is on a Hennessy!
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!
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.
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.
WARNING: Will discuss Rhurbarb Strawberry Pie and Livermush at random.
