It does lay flat and seems strong enough but its not hear as open as yours. more of a cacoon than hammock.. please help..
    Sounds like your ridgeline is too tight. Try shortening it a little. There's tons of tips on the forum for ridgeline length. A quick search should provide some helpful Info.

    It's in Orange Beach at The Wharf waterpark. Some friends have a condo there. My rich uncle has a condo at Perido Pass. We go over to the Wharf for a couple days during our stay. You have to be staying there to get in.

    It's a great place to spend the day. Several zero-entry pools, waterfalls, a lazy river, and of course, hammock island.


    This video was actually from last year. Just got around to posting.
