Hammock

I want too hang a hammock to make the most of the lazy hot days I am forced to endure in Croatia. The ideal place is between the Staysail and the mast. Will the roller reffing on the staysail take the weight of a hammock ? The boat is 47 feet long with profurl reffing gear
Thanks John

Unless your body weight is in excess of 1400 lbs , the weight would be no problem whatsoever.

I use my ATN Tacker to hang my hammock between the mast and forestay with roller furling. An extra halyard keeps the Tacker from slipping down the furled genoa. No problems so far.
