      It's made!

      It is a non Z because my machinist failed to read the instructions and used
      ordinary parallel
      stitching rather than Z stitches. No big deal she is still talking to me and
      dinner was as good
      as ever :0)

      I set it up between an apple tree and a clothes line pole. I thought the
      chances of the
      webbing sliding past the whipping high so I set it just off the ground. Of
      course when I sat in
      it it touched the ground.

      After experimenting I found that the head end tied 4' up and close to the
      pole with the foot
      end 6' up the tree made a very comfortable bed. So comfy that I spent 45
      minutes in it until
      my head slowly subsided and met the ground. I'd pulled the clothes line pole
      out of the
      ground! It started a lot of moaning about where to hang washing and I've had
      to promise to
      get some cement for tomorrow.

      Still, the important thing is the whipping and web loops work, the hammock
      is comfy and I'm
      very happy. Also, there aren't many clothes line poles out in the woods.

      Cheers ..... Derek
