I'am looking at replacing both the main sheat and jib ropes on my Getaway. Searching the web I came across the following vendor link with some good descriptions of the different types of sailing rope:

The MFP Cover / Composite AmSteel Fiber Core sounds like a good replacement.
Any recommendations, should I replace with like length, I typically find myself with a couple of yards at my feet most of the time; or due to the low stretch on this type of rope should go with a couple of extra feet?
