        Trick question. It ain't rope. It's line. Mooring lines. Used to be three-strand, right-hand laid sisal-hemp. Later it was nylon braid (Samson braid). TM's were the Boatswain Mates of the sub-service.

                  Heaving lines. In the hands of a good seaman, capable of punching out the window of the XO' windshield as we put over #1 line. A ten-ounce slug of lead in the wrap insures maximum damage.

                      Sure did, it was for the defunct 1/72 FOXTROT.

                      • Put some pants on those white legs just made me go blind. Too bad that Foxtrot deal went south. That would have been a nice kit.

                          The knot is called a monkey's fist - which makes the guy throwing it a monkey fister, and the guy catching it is a..... no wait, that can't be right. Forget that I spoke.

                          • You just don't want to get hit in the head with that monkey fist. Official on the Golf II molds. Don Spielberger of Loyalhanna Dockyard will be the new owner of the molds. I made 3 sails already joined together. I made 3 complete sets of appendages with all the resin cast mast and mast tubing parts. I am going to send those along with the molds so all Don has to do is make 3 hulls so he should be able to have some kits quickly. Dave if you still have the WTC end cap molds and such for the 1/72 Foxtrot I would dust those of so maybe you could offer those parts for the Golf. I am not going to completely get out of subs just need to take a break so I can move back to Dallas then when I get situated I can pick back up

                            • Hummmmm. Do you have a reliable way of contacting Don (other than getting on a plane and then driving to his house, I mean)?

                                Take care of yourself first.

                                I have several completed motor bulkheads for the FOXTROT/GOLF if and when anyone wants one. E-mail me if you need one, Tim. I'll fix you up.
