Running with a telegraph pole.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Surely not alone - how much does one weigh?
     
  2. "Googled"

    The weight of a new telegraph pole will vary enormously depending on the length. A 6m 'light' may be 70kg whereas a 24m 'stout' may weigh half a ton or more
     
  3. So the second one will take either two booties or ten matlots to carry.
     
  4. Why do you ask Ollie?
     
  5. It's not a telegraph pole, it's an incentive log.
     
  6. of course it only takes two booties - the weight of the telegraph pole would even up the chip on the other shoulder
     
  7. Stefan_Grainger - I am going to do a Pre Entry Diving Aquaint at the end of April and I know you have to run the perimeter of the lake carrying one.

    Does anyone know some stats for this 'motivational exercise'?
