Need help with buying rope
I recently purchased a Watkins 23 and it is in need of some new lines.
I am new to sailing and this is my first sailboat, so I'm not good with all the names of the lines and parts of the boat.
The line in particular that needs replaced is the one that goes to the tops of the mast. I guess this is the one that raises the main sail. What "kind" of rope should I get? What size?
I am not racing this boat or anything, just pleasure sailing. I am hoping to get an "all round" rope for all of the lines on the boat. Is this possible? If so, what do I need to look for?
The boat has been sitting for 10 years so all of my lines will need replaced.
What about my anchor line? What should I use.
Im not looking for the absolute best, just the standard is fine.
