Hi Nick,

Yes, I have used it. Very easy. You will like it. Plus, with a tad bit of modification, you can hook one end of your Hammock on there for lazy days at anchor (which is much more important, you understand!!!).

It works like advertised.

Dos a search on "ATN Tacker". There have been four threads on the subject in the last 12 months.

"It is not so much for its beauty that the Sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."

And REALLY easy to make one! A bit of webbing, some sail cloth...
Why buy when you can make yourself?
