Here's what I did suspension wise.
I have a continual loop on my hammock which is attached to a soft shackle, which is connected to another continual loop wrapped around the ridgepole, larks head style, and ANOTHER continual loop holding up the ridgepole from the lashing. The tape is so it doesn't slip. We didn't have that at first and my hammock started getting the most ridiculous sag. I plan on getting my grandpa to help me come up with a solution for that, maybe dremmle in a loop.
That's a latta loops.
