Mark, Cuda, Are they lines from Myrope? I had one of those on the rear cleat tied up with a friend and some wave action came in and snapped that line like nobodys business. Great lines but don't use them in stressed situations. And keep the names up so they don't rub the names off on the dock!!

They are from myrope. I can attest to the strength of these lines. I was putting my boat on my buddies lift over the weekend and had some issues. Luckily i had a line from the bow to the dock. It is a hydrolift where you have to raise the front all the way up, then raise the back up. well......when the front came all the way up, my boat slid down the lift like it was dropped out of the sky. It would have been on the other side of the marina if it wasn't tied off Anyway the line held and almost ripped the cleat out of the dock. I couldn't even untie it from the cleat. had to get a screwdriver and work it loose off the cleat.

Was an interesting experience to say the least.

I got them in 5/8 I believe, so I don't think breakage is going to be an issue on a 22 foot boat.

I have 6 docklines and 6 fender lines from them. The docklines say Monsoon. I am quite happy with them.

While we're on this topic, anyone make a thinner line than 3/8"? Those side/front cleats on a Top Gun are dinky, and std 3/8" line is tough to use on those cleats.

Top Knot ropes are poly which float but are far from the best.
