When river boat pilot Captain Joshua John Ward found the grass-filled mattresses on his boat too hot in the summer, he decided to make a cool and comfortable cotton rope hammock to use on his boat. After several uncomfortable designs, Cap’n Josh made a hammock using wooden spreaders without knots. This original design has proven to be so comfortable, that it’s still used in Pawleys Island’s popular hammocks, over a century later.
