Viking Day - Rope


#1

Hi Jim,

Where do I get a rope that is that long and that thick?
I always find ropes on the web that are either too short or too thin, but they all have in common that they're fucking expensive.

Could you help me here?

I really love your work, keep it up!

Greets,
Michael

May be a slim chance but if you have a Marine complex or training camp anywhere near by they use rope for bridge building, you could go ask. I got some scrap off of them, 60ft 2" thick.

I bought one from EFS a few years ago, mine’s the 50ft version of the 2" rope. It comes with a d-ring to attach to a sled.

Check a shipping yard or something. I snagged a massive nautical rope near my local ship channel. Or google industrial shipping supplies, most tug boats use them.
