The hammock arrived today! Amazing service. Your shipment took 6 days
to get here, 2 days less than the overnight parcel from Manitoba that
was sent by another company.
Thank you for such great service. And I took the hammock out of the box
- it's beautiful! So soft and such a rich colour. I can't wait to try
it out and am looking forward to relaxing in it this summer, if I can
pry my husband out of it. :) Thanks again for the great product, I
searched for several days before coming onto your website. Your
hammock's quality and the fact that it's Canadian and reasonably priced
are the reasons I bought it from you. It was such a relief to finally
find the right company, I was beginning to despair.
Have a wonderful summer!

Something I have never done before...
At a time when everyone else is cutting corners, delivering sub-par product and
service, dealing with you has been a real pleasure.
Your product is better than advertised. Your service was spectacular and far
surpassed my expectations. Probably the best 200 bucks I have spent in years.
Thank you so much for everything.
Ecstacy! That is what I felt when my husband brought me home a Kingcord
hammock. I have it hanging freely beneath a beautiful shade tree with a
glimpse of sunshine rays streaking through the branches.
summer I spent many days lolling on my new swinging bed of rope
netting. I like to think of it as a bed because it is so easy to just
drift off with the slight movement you experience even while lying very
still. Even this spring when the weather was chilly I would take out my
pillow and old sleeping bag to place underneath and over me to stay
cozy, read a good book and doze off.
appreciate the aesthetics of my hammock. The deep dark forest green
blends in with the trees that surround our property and the beautiful
wood grain of the yokes adds a feeling of warmth. The hammock is very
light and easy for me to take in and out of the elements at night so
that I may have my luxury for years to come.
It has been a gift that I have enjoyed and will enjoy for a long time.
Our family of five lives on the ocean...
Father's Day, 1996, we decided to buy Daddy a hammock.
We were lucky enough to find Kingcord Hammocks, who graciously supplied
us with their superb Bougainville Deluxe Hammock. The fact that the
wood is hand carved and the hammock is made from one continuous piece
of rope by a Canadian family business, was definitely a factor in our
decision. Not only do we have three children, we usually have lots of
neighbourhood children as a regular addition to our family. Therefore,
a hammock of superior quality and durability was a definite must.
I am pleased to say, it is now May, 2000 and our hammock has survived,
against all odds, to carry us through the new Millennium. It is still
like new, and I am ashamed to say, with our busy schedule we are a tad
slack at being efficient and putting our hammock away before storms or
spring hits we basically hang it and leave it out in all types of
weather. Living on the ocean not only brings lots of squalls and rain
but also lots of salt spray. After a storm, our windows are usually
covered in salt. However, despite us, our hammock is ready to carry us
into a new season. When I say "us" I literally mean "us", as it is a
very rare moment when Mom or Dad will lay on the hammock without our
little ones joining in. It is not uncommon for our hammock to have as
many as 9 children and/or adults swinging at one time.
I would definitely say, our hammock speaks for itself and has definitely gone above and beyond the call of duty!

I ordered your hammock kit and recently finished making my own hammock.
I used the forest green rope with red oak spreaders with a Cherry
colored stain. It looks and feels fantastic!
just wanted to express my thanks to you for offering the instruction
booklet and materials to make a hammock. This was something I had
wanted to do for a long time but I was disappointed at the lack of
information I could find on the internet and in the local library. Then
I found "Hammocks by Bougainville" on the web. Finally I've found what
I've been searching for all these years! Finally, I have my own
hammock, made by my own hands.
I am looking forward to making more and will be ordering supplies soon!
[In a follow-up email:]
…I have ordered another kit, as you well know, a while back. The bed and
clews were finished within the first week of receiving the kit. It's
amazing how fast it goes when you've done it once already! I have been
slowly working on making the spreaders, which is the time consuming part
of making the hammock. One night I would drill the holes, another night
I would countersink them, and the next I would sand them and prepare
them for staining. Then it takes 2 days for the stain to dry before I
apply another coat. Two days after that I begin applying the varnish,
which takes only a day to dry. After 3 coats of varnish, the spreaders
are finally ready!
Oh, and the first hammock I made is holding up very well! I take it
down when I'm not using it so that, a) it doesn't get weathered, and b)
it doesn't get stolen! All the neighbors are jealous and everyone that
has seen it wants me to make them one!
I had mentioned to you my method of securing the hammock to trees, using
ratcheting tie down straps.
You can pick them up for around US$5.00 each [now US$8.00], or you can
buy a 2 pack or a 4 pack for US$10 and US$20 respectively. Buy the
largest length you can find so you can hang the hammock from further
spaced trees. I believe the ones I have are 15-20 feet long. You simply
wrap the strap around the tree and place the hooks into the hammock
ring. I face one hook upward and one hook down. Once the hammock is
secured this way, it's easy to tighten it up after it has "settled" and
stretched. You simply ratchet it a bit! Couldn't be easier and it does
no harm to the tree!
hope you like my idea! Maybe you can include that in your manual as a
suggested way of hanging it from trees, so we can protect the trees? It
makes it a lot easier to put up and take down as well.
I am writing to you to let you know how happy my family and I have been
with our hammock over the last 13 years. All too often one writes
letters of complaints, and they are easy to compose. I thought it was
about time I’d put my pen to paper to communicate something positive!
we purchased our Bougainville Hammock in 1992, we have used it
consistently during our hot Australian summers in Melbourne. It is
enjoyed by both adults, children and now grandchildren alike, and has
made our summers by the beach very memorable. To date the hammock is
still in the same condition it was as when we purchased it, and
hopefully it will last many more years as a beautiful reminder of our
trip to Canada so long ago.

ride, I picked up one of your units online. Baby this thing rules! I
have found my new reading nook in the garden on Saturday mornings.
PS I believe this will be my new wedding present to my pals, I'm sure it
will keep marriages together.
