    Whoopie Conversion For Wbb

    I see ther is an excellent Whoopie conversion by Sticky for the HH. Is there an equivalent for the WBB. I have looked through the forums but so far cannot find one.

    Here are a couple that may help

    Kind of quick but just watch it over and over.

    At about 56 seconds you can see opie swapping out the suspension.

    Those are the 2 videos I used to do my conversion. That is basically all you need to know. The WBBB knot on each end of the hammock is attached by a string that is not in conjunction with the suspension so when you take the suspension out you will not unravel the hammock. That was my initial concern. It is really simple no worries.

    Ditto Raul's message. I recently did the same. The loop mentioned is the ridge line for the hammock. You literally can leave the hammock in the bishop sack and just expose the end you're working on at the time. Stock strap comes off very simply, follow the reverse to put on the whoopie.
