Hammock posts


i want to put hammock posts in the ground to hold my unusally large hammock, 2 or 3 people. what i was looking to find out was if there are any ideas to make the posts removable for the winter time. i dont mind if there is a brace or bracket level with the ground, i just want to make the posts removable, any ideas of what i can use?

Try sinking galvanized pipes into plastic sleeves in a sonotube.

Yup, that's what I was thinking as well. I have done similar with shade umbrellas, flag poles, antenna masts, temp fencing, etc.

That would be the plan.
You would just need to determine the best pipe size based on the planned(or unplanned) weight and the best sized pvc sleeve to match up with the galvanized pipe.
