    New Double-Stand

    I decided to extend my hammock so I can hang two hammocks side-by-side. The photos are on my website: www.Hikehaven.com. Click on galleries, and goto hammocks. It is towards the bottom. Enjoy!!!

    looks like the one Ed Speer uses & looks like it would work like a charm.

    Yep, that's exactly where I got the design.

    What did the materials cost you?

    Total, at a length to work with a Clator it costs just under $300. That's a bit expensive.

    I have not set it up with the 3 x 6' length's for the Claytor yet. Maybe I will try today if I have time.

    You can make a single for a HH, or hammock shorter than a Clator JH for about $160. Of course, if fuel prices keep going up it will get more expensive.

    I can tell you that I priced out a simple "U" shaped 1-1/4"-diameter pipe single stand for my Claytor and it was around $130:
    (1) 10' pipes
    (2) 90 elbows
    (2) "T" fittings
    (3) 6' pipes
    (4) 2' pipes

    Thumbs down

    I just tried the stand at the length the Claytor JH would require and it is way too long; it sags a lot. I don't trust it without a cross member. I am going to return the extra pipes to lowes.

    FYI:

    I am returning all the parts for the new double-stand because I don't like it. The single is fine, but I just don't like the double.
