      Including the gathered end, my hammock is 9.5'. So I'll make the ridgeline 95". I'm not using my Texsolv cord, it's too expensive, so I'll order something. It sounds like the ridgeline is attached to the hammock via whoopie slings (?).

      Next up...whoopie slings! :/
      I have one I made out of amsteel that is 89" long.....yes, I screwed it up :D , that I will give you if you want to try it out just to see how it works for you. No whoopie slings needed to attach the ridgeline to the hammock.]
      Thank you for the offer but it will probably cost more to ship than it's worth. I will order some extra Amsteel from Dutchware when I order my suspension system, hopefully next week.

    • I figured out what it meant to lie in your hammock horizontal. :)
      Think of a bed and waking up in the morning with your head in one corner and your feet pointing to the opposite corner. That's how you lie in a hammock (I think), not with your feet at one end and your head at the other...more askew.
