    How to Fit a Hammock (or two) on a Small Sailboat | ⛵ Sailing Britaly ⛵

    September 11, 2019


    Hello! In today’s sailing tips video we’re going to show you how you can fit a hammock onto a small sailboat. To stop the hammock from sliding down the shroud we’ve got this small diameter line attached to it which acts as a stop. Then you tie a knot with your hammock line. At the other end of your hammock attach the line like this… and now this can be put around the forestay, and the job’s done! Now it’s time to get on: Rossella is going to do that for us! First of all, put a leg on each side of the hammock, now from behind you stretch it out as wide as you can, while you gently sit down. Once it’s got your weight, you can lie back and enjoy some hammock time! This is a 30-foot boat and we can get two hammocks side by side so that Rossella and I can lie down and just chill out next to each other – it’s fantastic. Nothing beats lying in a hammock and looking at a view like this… [sunset viewed from bow of boat] Thanks for watching, subscribe for more sailing tips, and our other videos, and we’ll see you next time.
