  5. New sisal is proper nasty innitt. New PROPER manila however is luverly.
  6. Lol. Generaly used with wire rope but still often used with stiff or gash rope. When coiling down sometimes its a twat when coiling normaly to the right so you put a coild down to the left and it takes the spring out of it and coils much more easily. I would expect anyone teaching using ropes to understand th e term not everyone who uses ropes though. I reckon Mr google will probably have a description under frenchman, rope or similar?
  7. A while ago a chap was having trouble coiling some old rope next to his boat, I just said " just throw a frenchman in " and he didnt even know what I meant. I will just add that at the time he was actualy supposedly giving lessons to someone else on rope use!!

  24. To be honest, any kind of living on such a size of boat would be purgatory imho. CART will chase you a little on the canal if you just bob about ignoring their rules but the Thames bods seem to allow people to moor for ever without moving on the river in Oxford. There are several boats I know of that havnt moved for many years.
