- Dec 1, 2003I have a problem. I need to fit more beds in my boat, but can't
build in bunks. There isn't enough length to fit in normal hammocks,
but I do have a steel roof.
Sooo . . .
I was wondering about making some hammocks using spreader bars. I
know these are usually frowned on because they are unstable.
However, I could put eye bolts through the roof, so that each end of
the spreader bar was suspended. Then the hammock couldn't tip over.
I was thinking of using blanket material for the hammock, doubled.
then attaching it to the bars via a lacing, so I could adjust the
side and centre tension.
Anyone ever constructed anything similar, or have any suggestions?
How long would a hammock have to be with spreader bars; i.e., how
much longer than the sleeper?
