Another good source for Rope

Hamilton Marine in Searsport and POrtland Maine is another good source for Rope. They buy alot factory overruns and have huge piles of it in stock- I saw everything from 3/8 inch to 2 inch (and probably bigger) there. The wave a website Welcome To Hamilton Marine. I've never bought Docklines cheaper!

quote=rmeador;693676]Thanks for the explanation. I guess both my dock lines and my sheets are double braid. I have some three-strand line that I use for backup dock lines right now, but it's probably too small for that job, and I really don't like it... it's hard to work with, and ugly. After I made my first post, I checked prices on Defender and they're quite a bit cheaper even after WM's discount. I just checked out RWRope, but they don't list prices on their website. As a rule, I try to avoid doing business with companies that don't list prices.[/quote]
