When hearing Desert Island, most people automatically think of a tropical island, with sandy beaches and swaying palm trees. And what are palm trees known to be good for?

And if necessary, you can always use a hammock for other purposes than gently swinging in the breeze. Depending on its structure and material, repurposing a hammock as fishing net or canvas bag, for example, comes to mind.
