I was a bit taken aback by the tone I inferred from your post. I'm mentioning it not to criticize you--it's your right to post however you want--but to explain that it might work better to take a different tack. If you're a beginner, which it sounds like you are, you'll get better results if you don't come in spraying your belief that you already know a better way to do it. If you already know it's better, why bother asking?
A better approach might be to spend some time thinking about why someone might choose the "dumb" approach even though there are so many better options available. Keep thinking until you get a better answer than "because they're idiots."
In my post I was only referring to Hennesy using a rope-on-rope lashing system. It looked to me like it would wear out very quickly. All of the posts I have read on this forum have been extremely intelligent, well thought out and reasoned. I know nothing about this niche, and am learning bucket-loads from all the posts.
