    Stay calm, be brave....wait for the signs. Possibly precariously prevaricating.

    I thought hemp rope was a thing of the past? Although there is still the occasional chunk of hemp halibut gangion to be found at Prince Rupert garage sales.

    robm, those ropes are not hemp; there are orange and green polypropylene lines in that pile, both heavily impregnated with Bay of Fundy mud.

    Steve, I love the auto-motif killick.

    Oh, I know they are polypropylene. It was a bit of a pun on the pot line thing. Time was, they would have been hemp. And I do wonder: Are ganja and gangion related? ( A gangion is a stiff length of line that carries the hook on a long line, they get clipped on the line as it goes overboard. Used to be tarred hemp, now stiff nylon.)

    I didn't catch the hemp pun, but I do know what a gangion is.

    I used to get 1/2" marline hemp rope ends - the bit at the end of a coil that is too short for a pot warp - and make ocean plait doormats as gifts for my friends. Can't get it any more since everyone switched to polyprop. Too bad, the mats looked (and smelled) great when made of marline.

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    Yup. Leaf springs on a crankshaft. Necessity is the mudder of invention.
