How do you say "Boltrope" ?
Ok, so i wandered into the riggers the other day looking for a Clevis Pin and while there asked if they kept any Boltrope channel. (I need some for a canvas thing I'm working.)
C'mon, you know, the stuff that you sow into a sail that goes into track on the mast or boom. Boltrope.
Ohhhhhh .... Bolt Rope.
hmmm .... now I have always pronounced it boltrop ..... but they are insisting on Bolt Rope .... What do you reckon ?
