Good web source for running rigging?

I'm looking for some extra jinny/jib sheets and replacing the boom vang line. For cruising purposes I am thinking sta-set for the headsail sheets, but am open to recommendations. More importantly, I would like a spliced eye in the line for the boom vang so I can make a larks head onto the cam cleat/block. or should I just use a bowline?

I don't have any local rigging shops. Any comments on these choices and good recommendations for suppliers via web/phone?

I've used Defender and their rigging services on a number of occasions and have been very happy.

Re: Good web source for running rigging?

I've had excellent service from seller Roscoef on e-bay. This is a link to his e-bay store: Marine, Industrial items in Discount Rope and Line store on eBay!.

He had no issue replacing 100' of line I ordered wrong - immediately send me the correct line and even included a payed envelope for me to return the line I had wrong.

Oh yeah, I have no connection to him, except that I have, and will in future buy all my running rigging from him.

Re: Good web source for running rigging?

Cajun Trading seems to have a good rep - can't speak from experience. Bought lifeline hardware from Defender and they were perfecto.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

You might PM Knothead here on SN. Several of us have used him for various rigging projects, I recommend him.

Re: Good web source for running rigging?

I would certainly recommend Knothead--and plan to use him myself in the near future for some standing rigging. But I did use Cajun Trading for new running rigging a few years ago and was very happy with the prices and quality.

Re: Good web source for running rigging?

Just to add, R&W ropes is also pretty good on the price and service end
