When we first bought our boat we filled every garbage can in the marina with previous owner junk! Water line came up at least an inch!

What hasn't gone into dumpster other boaters have taken. There was enough rope on here to tie the world down!

Greetings,
Mr. frg. Ugh indeed. Don't let it get you down. After a bit you'll be spouting nautical talk like an old salt...Ooops, forgot your profession/calling. MOSTLY nautical talk. Many moons ago one of my Power Squadron proctors was ex navy (WWll). He told us there were only 3 ropes on a boat. The bell rope, the bucket rope and some obscure "rope" far aloft on some sort of 4 masted sailing vessel. This might help you along with the "other" nautical verbiage...

When he gave it to his friends, it was carried off the boat and it became rope. Kind of a nautical transubstantiation.
