I just took delivery (today) of replacement halyards/jib sheets. I found a place in Daytona Beach that makes their own rope, got 280' of 3/8" white with black tracers poly double braid--low stretch and tensile rated at 4400 w/a 30% margin of safety built in: very comparable to newengland rope . 99 bucks plus ups ground. 35 cents a foot is 1/3-1/5 the cost of the others stuff i priced. this guy was great, and he will get all my business. let me know if you want his info.
