    Dyneema lifelines

    This would be my choice if I were not using 1X19 uncoated wire for my lifelines. I use it for my wind vane self steering control lines. About 10,000 nm in the last six years and there is no noticeable wear. At sea those control lines are in constant motion. . https://www.neropes.com/products/grand-prix-racing/product/detail/wr2-ultra/

    Mocking Ads on Craigslist

    My first car was a 67 Falcon, two door, hunter green with a white roof. Straight six with a 3 speed auto. That was back in 73. ( I worked at an auto body shop for two summers to save the money for the car and the insurance) Six weeks after I got it a drunk woman t-boned me in an intersection. It was totaled and my insurance sent me a check for $740.00 which my father promptly confiscated. (Not everyone has nice parents). I worked nights after school and all summer and bought myself another car a year later, a 69 Plymouth Satellite with a 318. This one was in my name.
