2014- Wolf Lake
This is my first ever attempt at reeving a double-luff tackle. This block and tackle have been lying around our house unused for fifteen years since we discovered it on buying the house from the offspring of Great Lakes ship Captain Les Bird. Without this tackle, getting the bag up requires one person to lift it overhead, and another to take up the slack in the rope. 'RT' (on the bag) is for Rudy Tismer, the lifelong camper from who gave us much of his camping gear.
