    Adding Bugnet to Stretchy-Side Mod

    Want to add full length zippered bugnet to Knotty's stretchy-side mod.

    Not sure how to put zipper on since the side will pucker when pulled tight.

    If anyone has done this advice & pics would be awesome!

    Thx, FH

    Sew the bugnet on normally, with things unstretched, then sew your zipper on 2" or 3" down into the hammock body, like the WBBB. This will keep your bugnet away from Mr. Zipper's chompy teeth, and aleviate any problems with the stretchside.
    Problem solved!

    It's better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

    Yeah, I did the stretch side mod on my WBBB. Sewn in just below the zipper. Doesn't interfere with the zipper works and takes up the slack only when the bug net is unzipped.
    Works great!
    I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, "I'm going to mop the floor with your face." I said, "You'll be sorry." He said, "Oh, yeah? Why?" I said, "Well, you won't be able to get into the corners very well."

    Can you post some pics - want to make sure what I am visualizing is what you are saying.

    Thx, FH
