I ordered 100' of 3 strand nylon for dock lines. These lines will be carried on board for transients and dinner destinations. I wanted to know if there was a rule of thumb for finished length before I cut and splice one end of them. 4x25' seems like plenty to me. Is there a chance I could get a 5th line out of them to use as a spring? I didn't think a 20' line would be long enough for a spring though. That leaves me with 4x18 and a 25' spring with room to splice. Does this sound good, or should I just make 4 at 25' long and be done?

I know this isn't a very technical question, but I'm pretty bored at work.
