Thanks I try to recycle reuse as much as possible
Looks like a decent job you did there with reuse and WW materials. Congrats.
Be careful about that suspension though. I'd be a little cautious about the breaking point of canoe straps. They are designed to hold stuff down not up. Unless you and the dog together are coming in at <100#.

So many trees, so little time...
We follow where the Swamp Fox guides,
His friends and merry men are we;
And when the troop of Tarleton rides,
We burrow in the cypress tree.
The turfy hammock is our bed,
Our home is in the red deer's den,
Our roof, the tree-top overhead,
For we are wild and hunted men.
I use the canoe straps as tree straps and attach the rope that came with the hammock to them,My dog and I weigh under 160lbs.so we should be Ok.I already have the canoe straps wiyh me so its one less piece of gear to keep track of.
$4 harbor freight tie-down straps are good for suspension... I'd hate to see you on youtube when your buddies on the river catch you falling down . . .
Hopefully those straps will hold . . . I didn't see how they're used, the buckles should not be trusted... the forces on each strap will can exceed the weight of the occupants. . .
Nice looking rig!
I wonder how much force a canoe generates in a 70 mph headwind. A lot of surface area and a lot of leverage there. ;-)
Free advice worth what you paid for it. ;-)
