Rope Work

Discussion in 'Boat Yard Basics' started by BlackMolly775, Nov 30, 2012.

  1. What type of rope is best and where can I buy it? What diameter?

    Would like Gray or Black to wrap my Poling Platform steps.

    Put some pics up when your done. I tried to do it one time but it came out like crap.... Maybe you can wrap my tiller extension for me at a microskiff discounted price ;D
     
  5. Never tried it, but that's why I'm using black rope on black powder coating. :eek:
