[Hammock Camping] Re: would this work to hold line?
- i don't understand, what is the matter with using a knot?
a few years ago i went to a boat show. one of the booths there had a
buxom young lady promoting their product, a nylon device that fastened
two ropes together. basically it was a plastic split bolt like they
use for electrical cable.
she fashionably demonstrated how it worked by inserting two ropes
into the slot and tightening the nut. when i asked her how that was
better than using a knot, the demonstration kind of came to an awkward
pause. she suggested that some people don't know how to tie knots. i
suggested that people like that have no business on a boat. she was
very nice and gave me a free sample. i have it around here somewhere.
i hope i can find it on a cold rainy night on the deck of a boat when
i need to fasten two ropes together.

- Hi Moz,
I like that knot. It's basically a prussic with a clever way of tying
off. Once tied, is it adjustable?
The pics are great--very clear.
