Can I make a quick draw with two carabiners and some webbing tied up in a water knot? Is there any limitation on the length of webbing or the types of carabiners that I should use?

Yes, you can make draws with tied webbing, but there are better options.

No, there is no theoretical limit to the length, although there is a practical limit.

No, there is no limit to the type of carabiner you could use, although some are better suited than others.

My very first set of draws in the mid-90's were tied 9/16" webbing with BD ovals and Light D's. They worked at the time, but getting a standard set of draws and augmenting with long slings as needed is the better way to go.
