DIY Hammock Project

Well I made up my first hammock today.  It works so I am pleased with the results.  Stitching is not pretty but seemed to do the job fine.  I can't wait to get it out and spend a night in it.  It's made of 1.6 oz HyperD XL.  OAL is 11'2.  I made the ridge-line and found it quite easy so I think I will make my own whoopie slings from now on as well..  Suspension is the whoopie sling/marlin spike.  I made a stuff sack for it too. 

It's comfy, roomy, and the kids are already wanting their own.  haha. 

Here's a few pics

thanks for looking
