    Thank you very much ... couldn't have done it ... wouldn't have tried without you pal. Sorry I didn't do it justice ... but going to definitely make another!

    bug net dimensions?

    Hawk-eye or Tinker

    I really like this idea, and you have all of the features I have been thinking on.

    Can you sketch, or dimension the bug net? for the tieouts and for size?

    That is all that I lack to start injecting.

    Thanks TZ

    Couldn't stand it any longer ... ripped out the netting and panels last night ... re-positioned them and re-sewed the netting with 1/4" black bias tape. Neater, cleaner and all but one mistake is gone. Now my seams aren't that much straighter but I won't be so ashamed to show it to Jerry next Saturday!

    I'm happy with it ... just don't want Jerry to be disappointed :woot
    Have you seen his work? Amazing thread injection work!

    Thanks for the compliment ... Jerry really nailed the concept.

    Well I was inspecting my gear, before our next outing to the AT, and found a flaw in the hammock that I made 2 years ago.

    I had planned on making a Jerry 5 when I got time but now it became a priority.

    Following the information available here, and on the thread Jerry posted http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ad.php?t=16164 I started cutting material and putting it together.

    Everything went smoothly until the bug net dimensions, so I kind of winged it there. Used a cat cut for the top, and more net for the sides. No Bias tape, rolled seam and double stitched. I have found that this is usually strong enough for my use.

    It is VERY ROOMY, I have only napped in it but also Very comfortable.

    Also made a new set of Amsteel 7/64 Whoopies for it, a Zing it ridgeline, and an IX 2 layer underquilt.

    Complete weight, with suspension, 600 grams, about 21 ozs

    A BIG thank you to Jerry and Hawkeye for posting the information.
    Also Thanks to Mac for his info on the quilt.

    When I get back, end of July, I will post more info.
