Re: New England Ropes Synthetic lifelines?!?!
With 1X19 stainless being so effective, with zero problems, and used boaters supplies being awash in the stuff for very cheap, why would you use anything else?
I, for one, don't see why anyone would continue to use wire for something like that, except that it's cheap and available anywhere and everywhere.
Some people have different priorities than cheapness and availability.
