    200' 3/8" marine anchor line and most of my white zipties. Replaced the old web I made 11 years ago with 1/4" clothesline. The old web was a big neighborhood hit but was starting to smell very odd. Not sure if it's moldy or what. More decorations to follow once we hit October. In the process...
