"It's rope. It is rope-like in its appearance and when used it acts just like rope. When used as a canoe it wasn't so great, but when you buy rope, you can't really expect it to be usable as a canoe, not even for short trips across a puddle. Next time I need a canoe, I will try something different - possibly from a canoe store, as I couldn't find any in the Screwfix catalogue. If I need more rope, I'd buy this again. Unless I needed green rope, then I'd buy a canoe."
