    All the talk about wire rope and thimbles and cable clips and stuff recently made me realize how little I know about safety ratings on tow straps, winch cable, etc.

    I briefly googled and didn't come up with anything good. Any of y'all who are Wise In The Ways Of Rigging have any recommendations for books to buy or websites to visit?

    The Navy has a number of manuals that relate to this issue, and that is the best source of knowledge that I have available to me.

    I'm sure there are more accepted manuals, but the Navy sure uses enough wire rope to identify what is a go/no go.

    Thanks all. I'll go dig through the PDF's ... and see if I can find some relevant Navy stuff out there. It's easy to find the Army paperwork... TRM's or whatever they're called.
