Boat owners use a lot of rope. You’ll need ropes when you dock your boat, drop an anchor, when you are towed, and more. Nylon and polypropylene are the two most commonly used types of rope in marine applications. It’s always important to have plenty of quality rope on hand, and SEACO has the supply you need. Explore our marine rope selection below, and contact us today to place your order.
- Anchoring. Boats use anchors to hold a stationary position while out on the water. A high-quality marine rope is necessary to bring anchors up and down while remaining strong enough to hold your boat in place.
- Docking. Depending on the size of your boat, several lines may be needed to dock your boat properly. Poor docking with low-quality rope can result in damage to your boat or others at the dock. Learn more.
- Towing. It’s important to be prepared out on the water. If your vessel needs to be towed back to safety after a mechanical failure, having strong rope on board can save the day.
- Rigging. For sailboats, rope takes on even greater importance. Rigging sails correctly is only possible when the right rope is used.
