    Again, it's a modified diamond shape. You saw the pics and said it was very nice at the time. But here it is again:

    It's the plastic variety, they are buried now in white stuff along with the pink flamingos. Pic was taken by Joe while he was seam sealing it for me. Impossible to seam seal here in less than 20 degree weather.

    how about doing something like a top cover that AHE makes for WB's but combining it into a tarp? head and foot end of the tarp would attach to the suspension via mitton hooks, the shelf side of the WB would have a pocket (on the tarp) where you would run the side pull out trough on the hammock. 2 prusiks would be added or maybe one on the shelf side to add tension to the tarp on that side. on the door side you would have one or two guide lines depending for the coverage you want. you could cater the dimensions for the most come weather you'll be in and or guidelines.

    i think i finally found a place where my imagination can run, problem is i can only lay in one hammock at a time. i think it would be fun to prototype something but I don't have a WB.
