Re: Need Rigging Advice

Yep on both my Halyards that is how I attached the line. On a small boat like ours there isn't a huge amount of tension on the halyard. Although in the pictures it looks like they are using it to attach the line to a big boat.

In terms of which line I would go with. It depends on how much money you want to spend. If money isn't a big concern I would instantly go with New England Ropes. It's probably one of the highest rated rope. For my climbing ropes I have purchased in the past I only trust New England. Just like anything you'll probably get people recommending all sorts of rope.

Because I'm a cheapskate I went with Cajun Ropes. After pricing them out it cost about 40% less than New England. I haven't had any problems with them yet but I'm on my first season. Someone else in the forums recommended them to me.

Edit: Oh! And if you want to try splicing the braided rope here is a great PDF created by NE Ropes. If you were going to try your hand at splicing I would probably order the line a little longer than needed in case you need to try the splice a couple times. In the guide it tells you how much line is required for the splice so you can judge how much extra to get.
