Our New Rope Reference Catalogue is Almost Finished!




Ok, its true we were hoping to have it ready for Beale Park but one thing and another got in the way and that didn't quite happen. In any case we haven't had one for 400 years so why rush it now! However we are on the cusp of going to print just a few things to tidy up and we will press the button. Its not a boring price list but an informative catalogue laid out in chronological order with the natural fibres at the begining and ending with Technora and the technical blends. There is a section on excellent books covering knots and splicing and all the accessories you need including our lovely new range of ditty bags. 

Stop Press: Well don't stop it really as we have just gone to print. We will celebrate its launch on the evening of Thursday 20th July when you can collect your copy and have a drink on Arthur Beale!

Beale Park Boat and Outdoor Show 2017 is over!

It was lovely to see you all there over the weekend. As always it was a very relaxed affair and this year we had glorious weather too - amazingly it rained only at night and was sunny all day. It was a great opportunity to chat to the boatowners about paints and ropes and to catch up on any marine gossip. In the evening we had a refreshing swim in the river on one night and a row to the Swan Pub on another night so it wasn't all hard work. Now it's time to finish our new rope catalogue which goes to print next week. I'd better get on with it.

Arthur Beale Class on Splicing Modern Ropes

Modern ropes such as Dyneema and Technora are many times stronger than steel but they are weakened by up to 70% if they are tied in a knot so they are always best spliced. This class will show you how to make a Dyneema strop or a soft shackle to take away. Entry £12.50 (High load eyes will be charged at cost if you want to incorporate it into your strop). Please secure your place by emailing talks@arthurbeale.co.uk
