    Whipping the Ends

    I'm wondering if anyone can instructed me on how to whip the ends of my hammock like the way Brandon does on the Warbonnet's please. I know how to do whipping but his methode is different. Is it a knot or a technique?
    Thanks, Cakes

    Check out that thread Deb. It's shown well in the photos of the ElDorado.
    Basically a channel on each end with cord through it to draw up the fabric, then tie it off behind the bunched fabric.

    Another way to go about it. What I did was splice a piece of dynaglide with two dead eyes on each end. Ran the dynaglide through the channel at the end of the hammock. Then I pulled one end of the dynaglide through the other ends dead eye tightening it causing it to bunch up. Then I wrapped the dynaglide around the end of the hammock whipping it into a wiped end. To secure it I ran the dynaglide underneath all the loops I made around the end of the hammock. This takes the stress off of the hammock fabric and puts it on the knot (gathered end of the hammock). I used the mason line that WB Guy provided to pull the dynaglide through the channel end and that was very easy. If you need 2 sections of dynaglide with dead eyes on each end to whip your hammock with and want me to bring them to TD for you I can help you whip them their or just give you the sections of dynaglide to whip them yourself. I could also do them in amsteal or make chain links if you would like. I however prefer the double dead eye method rather then a chain link.

    However if their is no channel at the end of the hammock and it's just wiped then I guess you could just do the same thing with the cord without running it through a channel.

    I use this method cause it makes for easy attachment and detachment of my suspension system. I use woopies with Dutch woopie hooks spliced onto the adjustable end of the woopie sling. Larks head the dead eye end to the tree hugger. Allowing me to set up my tree straps on the tree and deploy my hammock under neath the tarp in a rain storm. Also allows you to easily store you wet and or sappy suspension system outside of your hammock bag.

    Ok YMMV and hope this helps, see you on Saturday.

    Lazy River Road, how long are your double-eyed dynaglide pieces? And eye size?

    OK, That sounds pretty easy and I would like to see the double dead eye loops if you please. My hammck has a sewn channel and the fixed end of the whoopie is just larks headed through it. I think the whipped end will be "mo betta"!

    So I am horrible at math but I will give it my best. If any one sees a miss calculation in my bury length or anywhere else please correct me. However this is what I've been using on all four of my hammocks without any incidents and have all held together.

    I use a starting length of dynaglide at lets say 34". I fold that in half giving me 17" on each side. I use apx. 5 inches for the dead eye (give or take a few inches) and use apx. 10" for the bury which should be enough of a bury for dynaglide and about 2" of tapering. So when all is said and done you figure the final length is apx. 17"-19" due to the cord used for the locked Brummel and the shortening of the the dynaglide when it is spliced inside of it self. That has given me plenty of cordage to run through the channel end of a WBBB and whip it together with no problems. Their is a calculation for how much cord shrinks when buried I just don't know it. Hope this helped.
