    I think we might have to ask Dutch to create a new line of hardware for this line?

    I don't read Norwegean; does it say if it's hollow core? It would make a wicked pair of whoopie slings!! You would have to crawl through with the bury.

    So many trees, so little time...
    We follow where the Swamp Fox guides,
    His friends and merry men are we;
    And when the troop of Tarleton rides,
    We burrow in the cypress tree.
    The turfy hammock is our bed,
    Our home is in the red deer's den,
    Our roof, the tree-top overhead,
    For we are wild and hunted men.

    Reminds me of a Dueter backpack I saw at the Outdoor Retailer show a couple of years back, It was all of 6 ft. High. You could have used it for a bivisack except it weighed probably 90 lbs.

    Traslation of Article to English

    This rope can lift six jumbo jets

    TØNSBERG: The world's strongest. The world's longest. It is needed to keep the world's largest space.



    Some facts about the rope, when you read this, is somewhere in the North Sea on the way to the coast of Louisiana, USA, the country where everything is big. Or at least rich:
    ■ 27.2 centimeters thick
    ■ 54 km far
    ■ has a tensile strength of 2,300 tons, which means that it can lift six jumbo jets.

    It's cargo ship "Mississippi" that carries the world's most powerful to date mooring. Made in Norway, by Parker ScanRope on Kaldnes Tønsbergs oldest company, founded by his uncle Sven Foyn in 1796.

    The rope is actually a sophisticated giant continuation of what drove Reperbanen store even then, spinning fibers for rope that can withstand sea and sun. And heavy, heavy vessel.

    In October, two employees from ScanRope in place to assist in the assembly of the huge rope in the world's largest oil drilling platform, on which to hang the strap over 2,100 meters above sea Gulf of Mexico.

    Influence world prices

    Tau is a more accurate word than strap, made of polyester. Indeed, the same substance someone in his shirts, the kind that tend to stink after a few hours of use.

    - When we ordered 3000 tons of polyester supplier in France, there was so much that it affected the world price, chuckling project Trym Ekrem to Tønsberg Blad.

    - Every week for a year, we have received three trucks, he said.

    - This past year 24 men worked fairly continuously with this delivery, says Ekrem.

    In December, the first half of the mooring rope.

    - It should be in a chevron-platform with four ropes down from each of the four corners, 16 together. Water depth is 2100 meters.

    - It has been a pretty big job for us. We must ensure that the platform does not run off.

    Grows

    Project coordinator Tom Mello Parker ScanRope says that the company is well anchored in Kaldnes: there are no plans to move.

    - But we would like to have a greater depth outside, so we could take the larger ships, says Mello.

    Just eighteen months ago there were 130 employees there. Today there are 160

    - We are constantly looking for engineers. It goes up.

    And business is good, the project coordinator Tom Between tell.

    - Last year we had a turnover of somewhere between 500 and 600 million.

    Reperbanen on Kaldnes is owned by the U.S. industrial conglomerate Parker. And the management will not have to report to their American owners in Houston that they have problems, development and sale of cables havstående windmills increases constantly. This is often combined transmission and data cables.

    - We are in negotiations for several projects, both for mooring ropes and cables for windmills. The market is good, it is growing, says Tom Mello.

    Wish we had access to the line holding those end covers on. But at this scale it's probably half inch.

    Really, they should look into selling this stuff in Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas. Just one strand to hold your house down during spring.
