Boondoggle30 is on a distinguished road
on the Hammock 'thread'

I have only seen one method of securing a hammock on deck - one end to a halyard and the second to the jib halyard and raise both ends. Bad description, but you get the idea.

My jib is furled... I have a 'free' halyard for the spinnaker not in use... how can I set up my hammock?

A friend had suggested the one end on the spin halyard then tie some fancy knot he knows 'around' the furled jib or even off the eyelets (wrong term I know) that attach the jib sheets... I'm not crazy about putting that type of stress on the furler system... am I wrong? he claims that the system endures hundreds of pounds from the wind and will not be damaged by the lashing of a hammock...

Ideas? thoughts?
