      brian... i had an idea the other day (last year actualy). i took two
      short strips of 3/4" webbing, about 2-3" long & layed them together w/
      the hanging strap in-between. this formed a t or cross shape w/ a
      short pice of webbing on oppisite sides of the hanging strap. then i
      sewed the short pices together across one long edge (the side next to
      the hammock). next, waterproof the stiched side w/ seam sealer. this
      forms a flap on each side of the hanging strap, angled toward the
      tree. this should from a sure deversion of water running down the
      strap w/ very little added weight. and it`s always there. it`s a new
      idea so i haven`t had a chance to test it. a couple other thoughts;
      1)... add a very small pice of webbing, sewed between each cross pice
      & the hanging strap to make sure the funnel is always open wide.
      2)...webbing wider than 3/4" may help in a real gully washer.
      3)...testing may show sewing the cross pices at an angle may help.
      let me know what you think (brian & others). ...tim
