    Heavy equipment

    I met a guy camping next to us last 4th july, and hey gave me and my buddies a huge tow rope prolly 2.5 , 3 inch. He worked at Pacific bell and said he gets them all the time through them because all their big trucks that go into the boonies have to carry them. Sad thing about it is, we had to tow my truck out with it and when we parked it, the rope was cinched waaaay tight so we just left it hooked up and kinda tucked it under the truck....... welp somebody found it and thought they needed it more. hope this helps your hunt some.

    marine application, I worked in push boats and river barges for a while, thats where I first got the idea to use the stuff for yanking trucks out of the mud. 2 1/2" nylon works really well

    i work on the water too, and i hope that rope doesn't have the "marine grade" cost like everything else that touches the water. but then again, any other good tow strap/rope aint cheap either.
