    Or, you could just raise it so that it is just below the beam, at the top of the 4x4s.

    Nice rig!

    The BA is about 22 inches wide, which I realize is too narrow. When I curl up a bit I hang off both sides. But I did have to get up once and reposition because the pad was no longer under me, and I had the same problem the night I used it in my BB. I have a 4' wide piece of 1/2" CCF that I have thought about cutting down to fit, and may do that someday.

    True. It currently hits me just above the eyes, so it wouldn't have to come up much. Will have to see how much I am wanting to use it going forward. The deck gets hot in the summer and faces the setting sun.

    Looks good there OldMan. I'm sure you'll get it working just the way you want. Gonna tackle my first hopefully this weekend. Starting out with just a simple single layer gathered end hammock and go from there. Thanks for sharing.

    Looks good OldMan. (That sounds a bit rude, but I mean it as a compliment).
