Re: What Size Dock Lines do I Need ?
Take your pick on the line style. I use braided, for the above mentioned reasons. Altho I do have some 3/8" 3 strand made specifically for going thru the local locks. for my 28 LOD 6500 lbs boat, a bit light for stronger winds, but for the going thru locks application, works fine.
OTher wise I believe I have 9/16 might be 1/2" for normal mooring lines. Mine are 15' long, plenty for "MY" slips application. I do have some extra 25' ones along with the 50' ones ready on the boat when at other slips/marinas where a longer rope comes in handy.

I drives me dinghy!
