288 quid - someone must be making a nice profit producing those...

Well, if it's an old hemp rope, you could cut it up and sell it to the local dopers, or smoke it yourself.

I think if you've got to explain what something's for, you should sell a cheap utility version of it.

If everyone knows what it's for, by all means make a nice jewel encrusted high polish gold plated version.

Could always bid a fiver. The brass is worth that.

I'd pay good money for a ball of hemp yacht marline if I could find some. The old type, two-strand laid up left-handed, lightly coated in Swedish tar.

You can get it from a LOT of east coast chanderlys. I layed miles of it on the standing rigging when we restored US Brig Niagara back in 1992. Keith
