Why anyone would disconnected anything for such a tangle is beyond me. Just pass the bar through that or that around the bar,2 seconds done. You disconnect stuff and especially on a windy beach as you describe and you risk creating more tangles. I see it all the time with inflatos, they start with a simple 2 min job and are still there 30mins later. Simply because they disconnect their lines.

+1 to this !

Almost all untangled - but dealing with the issue of rectifying the results of detaching the bridle one one side.

Best advise - do untangling at home, drink tea whilst untangling, not bear/G&T - keep the cat well away - I have a 10kg Maine Coon cat and he took one look at the bridles and decided it was a big ball of wool/joy - I had a matrix style slo mo dive to catch him, before his v large claws & kite fabric came together !

Cats bury their poop thats why you can't find the fox.

It looks villainous. Probably plotting something. Sleep easy now :lol: Oh and nice knowing you.

V pleased to say with the help of mates on the beach & particularly a mate who has a Chrono 2, it's all sorted, test flown and it works!

The main issue was caused by attempting to untangle by detaching a line..... Now I know NEVER to do this!
