    Just found a 18m length of 16mm double braid rigging line in the shed, any ideas what I could make out of it? It's a bit too short to be of much use as a rigging line

    Sounds like you've got yourself two new lanyards waiting to be spliced up. If you haven't used an 8m lanyard before, you will wonder how you ever got by without it in those sprawling canopys.

    An 8m lanyard of 16mm rope would be an awful drag to haul around the canopy.

    Spider legs or dead eye slings I'm thinking. Or get some rigging rings and make up some rig'n ring slings.

    Exactly my thoughts. Building rigging ring slings is very satisfying for some reason
