11' DL hammock awaiting suspension,

Postby JBRanger » Mon Jun 11, 2012 11:06 am

Got the DL 11' hammock all sewn up. Just waiting on the suspension to arrive. 1.5ish "NUCLEAR" green taffeta inside, 1.1 grey ripstop outside. I did it this way so I can use a pad if I want in colder months. Weight is not an issue as I'm 155 soaking wet. This thing would probably hold someone in the 275 lb range.

You'ld better sew on some luminous arrows indicating the way up and out. At 155 pounds you're going to get lost in an 11 footer :P It looks huge :o

I like the colors. I like that you're able to get that far on it. I'm bad, I'm bad....I have not even put a finger on my sewing machine :oops:

Good project and great that you're almost done. We're proud!!!! :D Thanks for sharing your photo/progress......I'm inspired ;)

Yea, the suspension should be here tomorrow. Amsteel 7/64 for the whoopie slings and Zing-it for the ridgeline. I've also gotta make the bugnet. It never ends.... UGH!

Cadyak - If you're not busy this weekend (understand it's father's day) then come on to Jack's River. I'll let ya try out one of my hammocks. You can then decide what ya like.

Btw, anyone looking to make whoopie slings or do any splicing at all, buy a loop turner! It'll save you so much grief!
