Hennessy Hammock: The Coolest Tent in the World

I am very glad you guys are here. It is really helpful for beginner DIY hanger. I have moderate math skills and very basic sewing skills. My goal is a DIY hammock with zippered bug net and a basic Asym tarp. I have a question about zippered bug netting using the basic hammock and bug net guides and dimensions. The dimensions of the bugnet after cutting are not the same as the hammock. So how do you do this? With no hammock suspension in place what line do you follow? The hem of the hammock?

    I was trying to decide between this tube design and Cryptic Cricket's open bottom design. The tube design seems simple enough - I just didn't like the idea of the bug net scraping the ground if I happen to hang my hammock too low to keep the netting off the ground. The picture made it look like you need a lot of clearance to keep the tube clear of the ground. So I ended up going with the open bottom design but I discovered a couple important tricks with that design that Cryptic Cricket doesn't mention. (1) Make sure you use shock cord around the hole on the bottom and then tighten it up as much as you can AFTER you get into the hammock with the bug net for the first time. How tight that is depends on how far out you attach the net ends to the ridge line and maybe also how heavy you are (the amount of sag matters). For me, I ended up with 65" of shock cord (unstretched) around the bottom hole after tightening up the hole. Once you've set the size of the hole with a cord lock, you shouldn't have to adjust it ever again (unless you change hammocks or hammock inhabitants). Then (2) YOU HAVE TO FUSS WITH THE NET to make sure the hole is centered around the bottom of the hammock. The net hangs and slides freely over the ridge line, and you are entering it from one of the sides, so it's going to end up off-center when you first get into the hammock. But that's easy to fix if you just reach down around the hammock from the other side and pull on the netting so the hole is really covering the bottom of the hammock. If you reach down on both sides, you can feel for the edges of the hole on each side, and then adjust it until it's nice and even. You can't see where the hole is when you're inside the hammock, but you can feel it. In his video, you can see Cryptic Cricket moving around and doing something right after he gets into the hammock - he just doesn't explain exactly what he's doing. I bet he's sliding the netting around to get it positioned correctly. I got a really good "seal" on the bottom once I figured out (1) and (2). Hope this helps.
