Re: Stern line - nylon?
Pick your poison:
Polyester does not float either.
Polypropylene does float but has less strength but does not last all that long and is hard to tie reliably.
Nylon is stronger than Polyester, but not by much.
Polyester is more resistant to abrasion.
I would probably use nylon or maybe polyester and in either case, either add brightly colored floats every 8-10 feet, or else use a kellet to hold the line on the bottom.
