I wonder if they make these Rat-Guards in a larger size...

Rat-guards for dock lines - 30 -> 45 mm lines - Swi-Tec

A moot point really because compared to a Spade the Rocna would be constantly dragging at a rate faster than zombies could stumble after it.

Two minutes? slow reader!

Thanks for contributing to the thread though - now it's gonna take someone 2 1/2 minutes to read!

I guess we could go 90-odd posts posturing and doing penile comparisons about defunct sail-lofts.

Sorry for trying to insert a little light-heartedness into a site devoted to the oh-so serious art of sailing....

Give me a break!

I like it! Kinda like the trunk monkey idea.

But settle down: the curmudgeons are getting restless....

IDK...maybe sawingknots is a zombie overlord and he doesn't want us to come up with tactics against his people.
