Nylon, two 3m ropes for pontoon mooring on deck. 2 x 30m anchor ropes and a 3rd 40m shot line carried below deck in the rope store for diving. When not anchoring the long ropes are used for challenging mooring situations like deep french canals.

Hey Tim, I'm starting to think that you must be a pretty crap instructor, as last few threads you've started just seem to be asking questions to things you ought to know the answers to!

What knots, ropes, clothing, kit etc, if you don't know these simple basics, how'd you become an instructor? Or have you become a post whore?

Not all of us are endowed with omniscience. People such as myself can benefit greatly by reading about how these basics are done by those with greater (or different) experience(s) than what I have.

Is it not possible that the methods and materials used for doing the basics can change over time?

I am always learning all the time - try to soak up info like a sponge. As long as there is a LOGICAL explanation for something I will listen to it.
