The three most common rope materials are nylon, polyester, and polypropylene. ... Polyester retains its strength when wet, and thus polyester ropes are generally stronger than nylon ropes when wet. Polypropylene is probably the most common material found in ropes used in the marine field.
Braided rope is stronger and is nicer on the hands than twisted rope, but it's a pain to splice yourself. This means if you're using a windlass and chain, and you are doing your own splicing, you'll probably need to use twisted rope.
When the U.S. flag is displayed other than from a staff, it should be displayed flat, or suspended so that its folds fall free. When displayed over a street, place the union so it faces north or east, depending upon the direction of the street.
Flagpole finials are the decorative ornaments that are placed at the top of the flagpole. Finials can also serve to protect outdoor hollow flagpoles from the rain or be used to hold pulleys, which allow the flag to be raised and lowered.
On a flag with a rope and toggle, the toggle is usually on the top of the flag, tie the rope from the bottom of the flag to the other end of the halyard. Step 2: Hoist the flag until it is tight, making sure that the flag is being hoisted the correct way up.
