OK, so how many times do I have to write 'Strong and Stable' before you shout 'rope free'? (and don't you dare change your mind when I'm there).

Hmm... These waterproof notepads are great,  but you do really need a waterproof marker pen to use with them.

To amend previous comment:
"Hello, Mrs. Website, Petzl Plummers 'ere.  Now what seems to be the problem?"
"A leak"
"I'll make some notes.... Hmmm.  Need to look at the STOP cock."
"Will that work?"
"Yes, SIMPLE."
