Addressing Paul's comment, frequently rope selection is not based exclusively on breaking strength -- knotted or single line breaking strength -- since the strength of modern ropes frequently would allow selection of a rope smaller than can comfortably handled. Additionally, stretch resistance is a determant when selecting rope for halyard, guys, and spinnaker sheets.
