    The ones packaged as LED ropes are outrageously expensive. Perhaps you could make a battery operated flasher - see Bill Marsden's many circuits about this - and place the flashing circuit inside a weighted and pressurized 2 liter bottle. If it dangles at the lower end of the rope, it should help you find it at night.
