recycle as mooring lines for small vessels - the elasticity is perfect.  Also, in reasonably short lengths  - as vehicle tow ropes, but be very careful!

Once I saw members of a local fire unit using static rope in  a lead climbing situation, fortunately low fifth class, but I would not let a defective climb rope anywhere near aa situation where it might be mistakenly used for life support.  Most technical rescue situation do much better with static ropes  anyway.

Don't trust a non climber to know the difference!
