    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.
      No good deed goes unpunished.

        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
