I've had my Hennessy quite awhile (5+ years?? maybe more)- before Tom enlarged the fly !!!
This is how I modified my fly so my Hennessy would swing free like a normal hammock. And the over-sized storm fly I made for weather days.

this is what we looked like sleeping in our hammocks southwest of DaNang when I was introduced to sleeping in a hammock in the jungle - 1970-71
Your poncho was your rainfly. Of course if it was raining you probably weren't trying to sleep in a hammock. During monsoon we lived in our ponchos
