Longline Length

Recommended Posts

I've heard this dicussion a few times. "We used to use a 100' and that was plenty, then we went to 120' and that was going to cover us for everything. Now we're using 150' lines and you still have to keep your eyes open".


Are the forests of BC maturing to greater heights or have we just gotten smarter. (Obviously we're not talking about Coastal logging operations here).

I prefer the 120' for doing seismic or bucketing. Just seems like a good length for most of B.C. However one does need the 150 or more in some places for sure. On the coast flying chokers and crew around, I've measured 220 ft Spruce trees in around the pads. Those chokers are a loooong way down there sometimes. If you can get away with it, a 100' bucketing is a good fast length.
