Log Line ?

#1
What was the purpose of Log Lines. Seen neatly coiled and hanging from belts up until the early fifties. Were they of any use or just another hangover from the Napoleonic wars ?

Grumbles. I think the 'yankified' item you are referring to is the 'sling seat' (length of rope) with a snap sling (carabiner) used for rappeling (abseiling) out of a helicopter, etc. Different from a toggle rope!
