For those of you who didn’t read Bronco’s post on the Knowledge Bombs thread, here’s what he said:
“FYI I picked up a 50’ length of 3” diameter rope from a local marine supply place for free this am. It’s no longer suitable for working but, it’ll probably hold my puny ass just fine. They had a lot of it left so if anyone in Everett, Washington area wants some, call Dunlap Hardware on Marine Veiw Dr.
Otherwise it costs about $5/ft."
This was a very smart move. With a little effort, I’m sure almost all of you could stumble upon a similar situation.
