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.

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

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
