New running rigging
The dirty ropes you can see in the picture is my old running rigging (sheets and halyards), which have been somewhat overdue for replacement, while the nice clean ropes at the top of the picture and in the foreground are the new ropes.
It's only when I see the ropes off their usual places, and coiled like this, that the sorry state of them is truly evident.
Trouble is, the new running rigging is almost too good to use - for fear of getting it all dirty already.
