Rope Mat

Well, I'm on duty today, while everyone else has their precious day off. I spent a good chunk of the afternoon making a new thump mat for the main sheet. Here's what it looks like:

I'm not exactly sure what I did. I copied the pattern from the other thump mat that was already there. Once the first turn is finished, it's just a matter of following the line around and around the knot. That's a little easier said than done, as it involves moving a surprisingly large amount of rope through the overs and unders.
