Re: Cool, soft way of attaching jib sheets

One more thought for my life line anchor at work we are told 5000 lbs this is for the average mans weight for 200 lbs as average. I am 180lbs We have seen films in a fall of six foot a 200 pound block can get shock loads of 2-3000 lbs That is why they want the 5000 lbs safety anchor. This jerk might be why knots get so tight or lines snap. I just wish I could tack that fast LOL Regards, Lou

I suspect that there's more to it than that. The 200 lb downward pull on a horizontal lifeline results in a tension that is many times greater than 200 lb. Some simple force vector calculations can show that easily.
