Manila Line = Nautical Madness

I have been jazzing everything up in my life with manila line for years. Partly because I own a boat and always have it around and partly because its cheap and make’s a great make do material. If and when I get around to finding the PROPER ( boring) replacement I do not feel bad, nor have I lost much money or time. When In my twenty’s, on my first boat, I would make marvelous items out of old line and manila. I used Hervey Garrett Smith’s book The Marlinspike Sailor. Much better then Ashleys book of knots.(way to  complicated for my tropic drenched brain)
