And technically, it's bad form to use life-saving, rescue equipment as a general purpose line around camp.

Even if you're only going to haul someone in a couple of times a year, you want to keep your rope in the best condition possible. And after 5 or 10 years of use, it's time to retire the bag and get another. I've seen a couple of ropes that are so frayed and worn, they must be 20 years old.

Yeah, I baby my ropes more than most, but I have yet to hear a complaint when I'm pulling in a swimmer...
