    Thanks for all your efforts anyway. I know what its like attempting to do a deal for some 'mates'. Things can grow like topsy, and then there is the supplier getting his decimal points in the wrong place

    That article you linked is very well researched and written. Is more than 40 years since I was a bushcraft Instructor and its gratifying to see the progress that has occurred on such topical subjects like river Xing.

    Regarding the River Crossing article and rope crossing, interesting that MSC doesn't teach rope assisted crossings now. In my copy of the MSC Basic Manual 2 (1971) they do have a very similar method to the one in the article except that the first man does not have a safety line as well as the belay line.
    I dont think that there is a better way to cross than the one in the article as long as the ford is checked clear of logs and big rocks that could foul the rope.
