    Kevin Costner is 18 years older. He'd be perfect for this project.

    Nah, that raft would have cost about $25k by the time Costner was done with it...

    Watch out for the hammock acting like a slack tank and capsizing you and get climbing rated biners and forged eyes for holding you up. Having your suspension fail and being knocked unconscious would be bad enough on land and even worse over water.

    Yes, threaded carabiners (aka:quick-link at the home improvement store). Don't take chances, look at weight ratings.
    Tag with Home if your thread is more about home hammocks. Thanks!

    Please, oh please, get a video of everything as you launch it and load it, we want to vicariously enjoy as much as we can. Happy sail hanging.
