Novice mistake I made years ago...had a swimmer at Wire Fence, clipped, ripped, swimmer knew it was coming...gave it a heave ho, and plink, dropped right into
the river by the cat...I had failed to give the rope any weight, either by dunking in water or by other means...luckily, our swimmer made it to the boat easily, laughing
her head off. Lots of feedback from the peanut gallery on shore, lesson learned.
