Default Dock lines

A buddy of mine is looking for dock lines that are a certain color. They are blue with red specks . Any good links for

Default Blue with a red tracer

If you look at West Marine they handle a line in most stores that is Royal Blue with a Red Tracer thread.
I believe that it is made by Sampson Lines. (But not 100% on the Manufacturer).
But if you want something really nice with custom colors lengths and eyes. Then I have always used Miami Cordage 305-626-3000. or www.wire-rope-nylon-marine-supplies.com
These folks are top notch and will "make" you any size length or color combination.

For custom stuff, Rice Hauler is right. Even though Miami Cordage is not a OSO sponsor, I do recommend them for specialty work that the others don't do. Custom braid-on-braid, wire-to-rope and chain-to-rope splices, custom length fender whips, towing bridles - you name it. They will even whip the splices and ends of your lines in whatever color you want, so you can tell your long dock lines from the short ones. They also maintain the web site www.IMakeRope.com Great people and great products.

I have some in 3/8 inch. How much does he want, and what does this go for normally?

Marcia, from Top Knot Here. We have blue and we have Red, but we don't have the Blue with red tracers. We can make custom lengths and we do provide the loop on each one. Give us a call if you decide you don't need the red tracer and just want really good lines.
I think ricehauler was right about Samson. Even though it may kill a sale for Top Knot it is important that you get what you want. If I can help in any way just call 800-867-5668
