Ropes and Tackle (continued)
Fibre Rope (continued)
Never "fold" a rope or bend it sharply, or the fibres will be weakened.
Do not expose rope to oil, gasoline, paint or other chemicals. These can cause severe damage, especially to natural fibre rope.
Do not allow ropes to remain excessively soiled or dirty. Wash in clean water, and always dry natural fibre ropes before storage.
