Post Subject: Mooring Lines

Tony, Which material type do you find easiest to handle. I am looking to purchase bow and stern lines + centre line.

Post Subject: Mooring Lines

My personal preference is one of the modern polypropylene synthetic hemp type lines. They look the part, float, and do not absorb much water so are much easier to use/throw when wet. I tried some black three strand nylon line once and it was horrible. It weighed a "ton" when wet - even from rain. Personally I do not like multi-coloured lines. Modern Polyprop. line does not degrade with sharp shards like it used to. I think that you should visit a rope suppler, handle the rope and decide which one suits you. TB
