Re: Running Rigging Vendor_Whos Best?

If you need halyards, ask your vendor about "bulking" them where they go through the line clutch. They insert a little extra core material for a length of about 5 feet, so when the line is in the clutch, its a little thicker, so the clutch grabs better.

I would suggest you decide what manufacturer/line you are looking for and then try to find the best vendor that supplies it.

Re: Running Rigging Vendor_Whos Best?

I've use Milwawkee Rigging's Ebay store any time I need rope. They sell New England Rope. Their everyday prices are good but the best part is that they're always auctioning spliced halyards and pre-cut lengths of rope that sell much cheaper than any online store I've seen so far. So if you can accumulate your running rigging piecemeal over the winter, you can get some great deals.
(I have no connection with them at all other than having bought from them.)
