I use a rolling hitch on 3/8 three strand
What a thread, great stuff here. My two cents is that I have been following Nigel Calder's advice for some time and find it works great. Instead of using any hardware, I attach my 3/8 three strand nylon snubber line with a rolling hitch. I've weathered several 40 knot blows with this system and it has never slipped. Easy to tie and untie and no chafing problems. Page 711 of Nigel's book covers the details. He gives the rationale and the recommended line sizes there too.
Just what has worked for me.
Happy Solstice everyone!
