Anyone use this Amsteel rope when trying to pull a stuck jet boat off a sand bar? I'm thinking about getting some and having a hard time believing this light rope will do what they say it will hold/breaking point. I run my boat across a scale several years ago and with a full load of fuel (105 gal) and all gear (no passengers) it was 5600 lbs. Yes it was on a trailer when I done it. This Amsteel rope is rated 5/16" 12,300 lbs and 3/8" 17,000 lbs. I'm wondering if I'm stuck and have another boat try and pull me off, what kind of pull/force poundage power may be generated. This rope is expensive, but if it will hold up to another boat pulling you off a bar, I guess it is worth it. Okay what is your feeling on this.
My boat is a 22' TJ inboard with a 1/2 hard top
