Jeff don't know what you're planning on doing with it but to save money could you not use 'Lorryman's Hitch?

Hi Jeff sorry I don't have any ideas re a rope ratchet but i'm sure someone will be along. Pikey dave usually is my first port of call for these sort of things why not give him a PM.
Ah the 'holes' well this wx I havent been out much but I put a temp piece of plastic over them and I baught four yellow discs which I will probably winter, fit in the spaces it will be a nicer finish I think.
Cheers for now hope you get fixed.

Dunno, but if it's just for stiffening a (non-stretch nylon) semi-tight rope. I'd double loop the rope and use an oversized clothes line stiffener. At least here (Canada) you can get them quite big and will take-up about 8-10" slack. Good luck.
