    Default Source for 1" Polypropylene Rope?

    Has anyone got a source in Canada? Oddly, all I can find around here is 3/4".

    I'm looking for standard floating yellow stuff, 3-strand so I can splice an eye in each end.

    It's for our mooring -- the thicker rope will survive the chafe longer from the bobstay chain.

    There will be a company somewhere that supplies the like of mussel farms, oyster farms and fishermens nets, headropes and so on. We've got one here in NZ http://musselrope.co.nz/ > They have highly chafe resistant rope that floats, its used for net headropes on salmon pens and is perfect for mooring ropes.
    I'm sure you'll have someone similar supplying the industry in your part of the world. I get around to my guys and dig through their offcuts bin, its a real treasure trove.

    An expert is but a beginner with experience.

    Thanks, Ron. About 60 ft.

    I could fly over to Port Elgin sometime and pick it up -- and buy you lunch.

    Thanks, John. Sure, I'll go at it from that direction.

    and I'll toss it to you.

    Lunch sounds like a good trade.
    IMVHO,Southampton has a better airfield than Port.
