Ratlines and pin rails
Really like the new synthetic manila, Hempex. I am slowly replacing all my yacht braid with traditional looking line. I will probably use the braided simulated manila for the running rigging much as I would prefer the 3 strand.
Teak, bronze, leather and hemp can transform a plastic boat. The Douglas 32 has the classic lines to benefit from traditional (in appearance) ropework.
