Tube, ring and line

Hi, newbie here

I have a tube, and it has a ring, what does the line do?

Can I take it off shore?

It depends on which neighborhood you were shopping in when you bought it.

Is that attached to your Capn' Faggo outfit? If so...we can't discuss it here!

No longer posting. Reach me by PM!

Pull the line to enlarge the tube so the ring fits. Once you've done that, you can take it anywhere you please.

Good God Alex, are you still shipwrecked in Montana?

Dear Newbie,
Your line may be disconnected but if you have a tube and it has a ring you appear to have ...

Ya put the ring through your nose or around your bollocks, tie the line to it and tow the raft while doing the breast stroke to build your physique.

No matter what happens, DON'T PULL THAT RING. Especially when offshore. I had one of those once, but I pulled the ring.

I disagree,

The line attached to the ring is to be pulled early and often...especially when offshore. It is the only way to get the bull to buck fully and maximize your points during the 8 seconds.

The line is so you can hang it off the toerail to use as a tugboat fender.
