Bungee Cord

Ahoy gentlemen, merry christmas to all and too all a good bungee. Ha!Ha! I would remind the original author to keep in mind there are as many names for the wonderfull invention you mention as there are names for it and twice as many good opinions to boot. I use the cheapest bungees I can find generally because they all wear out and more often or not they are shot overboard long before this and I curse a lot less when this happens. As to Jeff-H''s terminology he is correct and what he may lack in bedside manner is fully made up for in pure intent of his love of sailing. JEFryar has a point as well so keep pushing us all for the info you need. I am a traditional sailor in many respects except where sound technology has made the grade through tested use. (Roller furling being as yet to make the grade except for racers and bay cruisers) Bungees are tried and true and will be an essential part of sailing until roller furling shock cords are invented. Sailing alone in Charlotte harbor, Big Red56.

Congratulations for settling your difference of opinion in a graceful and respectful way. As I was following the thread, I dreaded seeing it turn into a two-way tirade (and losing the point of the thread, which was the earnest question being posed), as happens so often in the impersonal world of on-line communications. But you two reminded us that above all, sailing is a sport for gentlemen (and gentle-women), and that giving each other a wide berth when on the same tack is the first rule of true seamanship.
Merry Christmas,
Jeff C
