Is this line the type that is not soft and no prone to the twist going soft when wet?
No, this is a soft hand type line.

hi. i need 4 3/4 inch lines, 2 25 ft and 2 15 ft with a 1 ft diameter loop at one end. can i get that from you?
What I would do is get 88 feet of 3/4" line, cut the 15 foot lines at 17 feet and the 25 foot lines at 27 feet and do a simple loop splice on each line. You need an extra foot because of the loop and about an extra foot for the splice itself. Easy spice to do--takes about five minutes per splice. Good luck
Kip, I'm a customer like you so I can't answer for Jamestown, but in the past I have bought pre-made dock lines with loops from several suppliers. Either look at pre-made dock line packages, or ask about splicing in a forum that does not get answered by customers.
i broke my neck and have almost no feeling in my fingers so if i wanted you to, how much would you charge me to make the loop for each? thanx
I don't know if Jamestown does custom splicing. I make my own loops, which is pretty easy in three strand.
do you have pre spliced and pre cut to length dock ropes?

This is probably a question for Jamestown, not a customer, but I will offer my thoughts. Yes, they probably do offer precut, spliced dock lines, but I would suggest you google online how to splice rope and you can quickly learn to make your own braided loops and splices and save a bit of money. This is what I did for my boat and it looks good, and I got the exact lengths I wanted for about half the price.
Is it possible to buy 250 feet of line, rather than an entire spool (600 feet)?
Yes, it is available by the foot.
Who is the Manufacturer?
New England Ropes is the manufacture.
will this rope work in a "GOOD" windlass ??
Sorry, I dont know. I used it for a mooring painter. J E
Shopper:I have only used this type line for mooring/dock lines.From my limited experience with windlass equipment, I would estimate that this particular rope poduct is not very suitable, as it's stranding is not as flexible nor does it have a higher number of strands in it as would be a good choice for windlass use.Suggest you call and ask Jamestown rope tech representative.
Can't help you with that one. I don't have a windlass.
Most windlass manufacturers recommend using 3 strand twisted nylon such as this rope and New England is about as good a rope as you can buy. To be certain though, I would contact technical service at your winch manufacturer because depending on the size of your boat and its anchor line capacity, this can be a substantial investment.
Next time I need this size line I will be back for more
Needed to replace dock lines on my Morgan 41. A very heavy boat. This line is great for that job

Great Three Strand Nylon
I have used this rope before for dock lines. It is, IMHO, the best available. I buy it from Jamestown Distributors because they have the best prices and excellent customer support.
Lake Superior's North Shore
The 60' piece of line was short by almost 2' which really infuriated me off because now my docking lines are shorter than I wanted. I didn't have time to deal with returning the line. You need to make sure you are sending what was purchased!!!!!
very soft, stretchy line. did well to help secure us through hurricane Irma. Definitely needs chafe gear though - it was not loaded very heavily compared to some of our braided lines and still showed significant wear. Cant be beat for the price though. I'll buy more when the time comes.
Great line for my anchor snubber
NER always have the best quality.
Good product, easy to splice or make eye for thimble
Fine line and durable
Great anchor line for my 19 foot sailboat.
Very good dockline
I use this for dock lines on my 27' sailboat. I like it because it doesn't get stiff the way some lines do, and it's pretty easy to splice.
very light anchoring and beaching our Catalina22
