I might be banned for redirecting you, but since you've had zero response here, you might want to ask on the 'Song of the Paddle' forum.

Been canoeing for 20 years and I've never heard of a goolie thong. Sounds like the thing Le Chiffre might have used on James Bond in Casino Royale.

B&Q used to make a loop of bungee with a ball joining the ends, is that the sort of thing you mean? If so, you should be able to tie a monkey fist with the double strands to make your own, it might be a bit fiddly with the two ends but you would need to do it that way to get rid of the other free end.
