Re: Warps?

My understanding is that warps are lines that are towed behind a boat in order to moderate its speed.
The effectiveness of the warps is variable due to warp length, line thickness and period of the following seas.

The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever. - Jacques Yves Cousteau
