Question Best dock lines and bumpers (not newbie ?)

This isn't some stupid newbie question; I've been boating forever...

I just picked up a new Lavey NuEra and have searched high and low for orange/hot orange dock lines and fenders to no avail. I've searched and read the various posts on here, but I'm sure some of you have an opinion on where to buy quality, real (5/8") dock lines and good-looking fenders.

Thanks in advance!

Steve

I've looked over the years and have only seen the basic colors... nothing really cool. May be a market for an enterprising person.

You can get the orange colored dock lines at http://www.mooringlines.com/lines.htm

For the fenders, you will probably need to get white and have custom covers made for them.

The best way I have found to mount your bumpers off your boat are Fender Suspenders. DoTheMath here on OSO sells them and they are truely the best and esiest way to hang fenders off the side of the boat or off a dock piling.

I like www.myrope.com .

All of my gear matches the boat, and is labeled with the boat name.

I was looking for the top know web site the other day and it would not open, does anyone have a new link. The company had been up for sale a few years ago, so I am hoping they are still doing well.

Word of caution on colors with red dye in them, make sure that you buy good lines, I knew of a few instances where that color will bleed and it could stain vinyl

Thanks Mike! And not only do I sell them - I spent two years inventing / perfecting them! We don't offer colors just yet - currently only black - but we do have 24 colors and custom logo options on the near horizon.

Call or PM me with any questions.
