Where to buy rope

At our marina they use New England Rope but YaleCordage seems to be a lot cheaper. Any thoughts about comparative quality or other suppliers.

Cajun Trading

Check out Cajun Trading. First rate product on par with Samson, Yale or NE Ropes at a substantial savings. Do a search on these boards and you'll see plenty of other advocates for these guys. I refit all my running rigging with Cajun and am very happy. Their Cajun XLE is comparable to NE Ropes STA SET or Samson XLS (look at a comparison chart here.

It depends on the spec as they all make stuff between 80 cents and 4 bucks a foot
