Hot on the heels of the waxing of the ropes comes the survival yet again of the old ropes. An eye splice in the fifth rope to enable the all but snapped tail to be replaced will allow a small indian summer for these old ropes. There is actually nothing really wrong with them its just that we have had new ropes sat waiting in the wings for ten years or so! However we would not have two half used sets if they had been fitted all that time ago!
