Hi everybody!

I'm putting the finishing touches to my Navy Attack, and wondered if anyone has an original navy life ring with the string still intact so i can tie mine correctly

Navy Life Ring String Mceptq10

I know... i know... This picture is the GI Joe one but i couldn't find any pictures of a VAM one.

From another picture i've found there looks to be about half a metre of string so that whoever throws it in can pull the rescued VAM back, detail on the exact length (nearest cm is fine lol! )

I'm not sure this is going to help. This is mine and I would hazard a guess that the Brit version is the same GI Joe stock piece with different stenciling.

The string (Rope!!!) seems fairly standard and must be easily replaceable from a good quality string shop!!!

Stringy is roughly 63.5cm long or 25 inches for us painted heads but looking at mine I've no doubt it's shrunk a bit with wear and tear etc over the years because it's been well loved and well played with... and that's the way I like it, baby, I don't wanna live forever!!!!

lol!

Thanks Jim,

That looks about right i think, and you're right it's the same but VAM one has Navy printed on it. I'll get my string out and get tying, thanks mate
