    Like others for the price range you looking at, buy the UQ now and DIY a hammock.

    The hammock is perhaps the easiest DIY project to work on. Its just 4 straight hem lines, a couple of whippings, and a pair of ratchet straps. You don't need whoopies or amsteel if you have long enough straps. Just larks head one end of the strap directly to your hammock body and tie the other end at an appropriate height on the trees.

    If you find out that you don't like the hammock the UQ can be sold here for near what you pay for it, minus shipping costs.

    Thanks for all the help so far. This forum is a great group of members. I am going to go with an uq for now. Unfortunately I can't order from the cottage I want to due to time frame so I may have to look elsewhere. It may be hard to get one in 9 business days. Let me correct that....it will be hard if even doable.

    LOL, I love how getting my questions answered now brings up a whole different slew of them.

    I'll be reaching to a few cottages Monday for info on lead times.

    Jacks R Better has very fast shipping. 9 days is doable with them.

    Check with Marty at WL. He's usually super fast. Everything I've ordered from him came in less than a week.

    Good choice--I'm a bit jealous. I need two UQs, one for me and another for my son, so my wallet tells me to DIY. But I have done some sewing in the past and have enjoyed it (of course, that was before I lost a finger to a table saw).
