Where is a good, reliable place to buy rope? I need rope for the jib sale, main sale, and a line for hoisting the mast.

Also, how what type of rope do I want? Thanks for the advice.

Layline, Murrays, APS, West Marine to name a few. Or you can CALL any Hobie dealer and they will get you exactly what you need.

I typically order rope (it's not a line until it's cut from the spool, but that's just a technicality) from:

http://www.apsltd.com

or

http://www.velasailingsupply.com

I just ordered all new lines all around earlier this summer. This is what I ordered and I am extremely happy with the feel and handling of the lines.

Main: New England Ropes Salsa 8mm 42ft.
Jib: NE Ropes Bzzz line 7mm 32ft. (I would recommend 6mm but I didn't know that then)
Aussie jib halyard: NE Ropes V-100 3/16" 70 ft
Main halyard: NE Ropes Sta-Set 3/16" 27 ft
Jib travel cars: Marlow Excel Pro 5mm 12 x 2 (different colors)

Everyone will have their own opinion. This is merely mine. It's not the cheapest setup out there but I really like it. World of difference over my old lines.

follow the hobie manual for diameter and length... i got some decent rope on the cheap via ebay. not the best ever but for what i need, it is ideal and was priced nicely. also, in bulk form it is rope and once cut to size and put to use, it is then line.

Some less expensive sources than Worst Marine:

www.defender.com
www.hamiltonmarine.com

I bought rope/line from them for my big boat. Lots more line = lots more $$ and every penny helps.
