Give your boat a sharp, well-kept look!

This is the strongest and easiest-to-handle line you can buy that stays flexible throughout its service life. The core and cover is constructed from the highest quality treated nylon. The combination of high-grade marine nylon, special torque-balanced construction, and a unique stabilization process produces a long-wearing, easy-to-handle line that resists kinking. Our double braid line offers controlled elongation and excellent abrasion resistance. Double braid lines stretch slightly less but are stronger than three-strand lines. 

  • Ready made with professional 12" eye splice and bitter end heat sealed and whipped.
  • High elongation; stretches 6.5% at 20% of breaking strength
  • 13,100lb.breaking strength in 15', 25' and 35' lengths
  • Torque-free non-hockling; stays flexible and very easy to handle
  • Very little degradation from UV; can be used outside over long term if inspected regularly
  • Manufactured with premium high tenacity nylon fibers and conforms to MIL-R-24050E

What Diameter and How Much Line?

Diameter: The size, length and type of line will depend on a number of factors including the length, weight and type of boat. The following information is intended as a guide only. Docking in exposed waters, strong winds or tides may require larger or additional lines.

Length: Transient dock lines are typically about 2/3 of the boat's length when used on the bow and stern. Spring lines should be equal to your boat's length.
