Re: Mooring lines

Here is a link I found on Google that will give you several alternatives:

I use the palm and needle whipping myself. When finished, I rub some wax over the entire whipping, even though I already used waxed twine, and then hold it over a flame for a few seconds so the wax melts evenly over the whipping. While not necessary, I think it gives some added protection against chafe and UV damage.
