The ship HMS Surprise, star of Master and Commander & POTC On Stranger Tides is getting all new rigging. The old line(rope)is weathered and no longer safe for holding any weight, but it looks great & would be perfect for decoration of a bar or yard. We are going to sell it for $20 a coil(obo). All proceeds will be used to continue to refurbish the ship. The coils are about 100 feet (some longer/some shorter) each and are 3/4 to 7/8 inch thick. No shipping, pick up in San Diego only. Thanks.

Damn that is a great deal.

You can use this for making fences and rails too.
Rope is not cheap and you don't want to use the new stuff anyway.

Search rope fence for even more ideas.

I would buy LOTS of this rope if I were not in Ohio getting snowed on right now.

A damn small ball of twine is $9.00 bucks.

Wish they offered shipping. Are there any coils left? Maybe I can get someone to pick some up for me...

I think there may be one or two left. We have 2 more masts to down rig, but the project has been put on hold. Right now all work and $$ is going to the Berkley restoration. So, good news, there will be more, bad news, I don't know when. If anyone will be in town, we're sailing the Star of India Nov. 17&18. She doesn't go out often , so def worth checking out if you can. Happy Tiki Tuesday peeps!
