I've got old rope that is so stiff you could push things with it as well as pull them, No idea what it is and no idea why I keep it but like lots of old junk it might come in handy some day. Old climbing rope sometimes comes up on E bay and is useful and good to handle, might not stop a 20 ton boat stuck in forward gear going into a lock but it has its uses.

If it's anything like the climbing rope I have it will caterpult it back out of the lock rapidly.

A climbing rope that didn't stretch would be like a cheese wire when you fell off the rock.

You shouldn't use a centre line to moor a boat - but it seems everone else does (and then complain when passing boats rowck your boat)

 

Poo - Cuthound got there first...

A centre line is a perfectly acceptable way to quickly moor a boat at a lock landing or for similar purposes.

No such word as pull really. Its always push. To pull something it always has to have some kind of grasp from behind in order to pull it.

That's deep, man

I've had a caving rope  (low stretch - braided sheath) go very stiff, and I never got it to handle well after that even after washing.  I have heard that fabric softener in the wash should help. I think it might be due to some kind of shrinkage of the braiding, in which case it is never going to improve.
