Is there anything green string can't do? We are always told to have 50m in our webbing and invariably there is a ball of the stuff in your side bins of your wagon for that trusty bdr bodge. I always thought that it was indestructable until a little incident on tour. Whilst refitting a winch to the CRARRV and winching in the rope, the recy mech managed to snap the shackles holding the pilot and main rope together. With no spare shakles in the system, I decided to attach said ropes together with green string. Worked a treat until 4 turns around the capstans the bloody stuff snapped to my dismay, and that of my recy mech boss. Kept me busy all night and had to dip my hand in pocket for a few beers for the recy mechs. Anybody done better cowboy jobs than that?
