Okay, I am in a very protected freshwater slip now with no chance of storms for a few months (we don't get thunderstorms around here). But I'll probably just get new lines anyway based on your recommendations. $30 is a lot better than a hole in my boat (or someone else's!).

Is there a thumb rule for how much line strength I need based on the weight of my boat (it's 3500 pounds)? West Marine says 1/8-inch of line diameter for each 9 feet of boat length.
