The best line to buy
I have a 23' Coronado that will need all running rigging replaced. I have no idea how much line I will need, but I think it would be best to buy in whatever bulk sizes make the purchase cheapest (per foot, that is; I don't mind having a lot of extra line). It appears that the entire boat is rigged with the same line - it seems to be about 3/8" diameter, white, very soft, very little stretch, and a very tight braid (I can't remember the term, but it's not the three-braid). I like it a lot, and would probably be fine with the same type.
I was hoping someone could make my decision easy... does anyone have any recommendations on what kind of rope to buy, and where I can find the best deal on a bulk amount? I don't mind calculating all the lengths myself, and will probably double that amount once calculated...
If you can think of anything else I'm too green to consider, please bring it up! And thanks in advance for all of the great help everyone brings!
