lokeman, we're going to have to make you drop and do fifty if you keep talking about "rope" on your boat.
Rope is what comes on spools in the store, once it hits the boat it becomes "line" "halyard" "sheet" "rode" or many other things, but it isn't "rope" any longer. Like the DI must have told you in Basic "This is your weapon, this is your gun" and you may remember what happens when you mix the two up?
Sometimes the hardest thing is figuring out just what the PO did and how to unravel it. If he wore a big red fright wig, huge floppy sneakers, and answered to the name "Bozo"....yeah, that guy has owned an awful lot of boats.
