Check out www.neropes.com. It''s the site for New England Ropes and will tell you more than you want to know about rope, types, uses, etc. It actually is a very useful site.

I would suggest that you get a copy of the West Marine catalogue. It contains a very concise and useful set of recomemndations on line choices for different applications as well as a sizing chart for the line that they carry. You might find this online as well.

I to just did the ASA a few weeks ago.If I remeber correctly the dacron lines are for your sheets and halyards, the nylongis for ancor and tie off lines.

I am an absolute rookie. I have just finished lessons but don''t have my own boat in the water yet. Does anyone have a good source for rope knowledge? I''m looking to replace the jib sheets, anchor line, and docking lines and don''t know the appropriate composition of rope. I only know a couple of types of composition, but curious of other opinions.
