    I would suggest a quick PM to 2Q/ZQ..they are proficient at hammock mods and can give advice from a place of knowing WTH they are talking about.

    Don't feel too bad. I did the same thing in my Skeeter Beeter except I just landed in the dirt on my rear end. No injuries to me (not physical ones, anyway) but ripped my netting near the end of the zipper. I haven't fixed it yet so will be interested in hearing what you end up doing. Good luck!

    Sewing patches on netting is simple. I personally would recommend hand sewing with a small curved needle. Trying to get into the interior of that expanse of bugnet can be a real pain with a machine. Ripped out seams are one thing. Machine stitch those. But bug patches... just get a 1/2 - 3/4" curved needle (Joannes has them), a pair of needlenose pliers and practice your best Dr. Kildare suture technique.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    "Bless you child, when you set out to thread a needle don't hold the thread still and fetch the needle up to it; hold the needle still and poke the thread at it; that's the way a woman most always does, but a man always does t'other way."
