New England Ropes takes the guesswork out of dock lines with these pre-packaged, black, double braid, long-lasting, dock lines. Each line has a professionally spliced 12 in eye and a heat-sealed bitter end. The 3/4 in line is generally recommended for dock lines for 20'-30' boats and spring lines for 30'-40' boats.
The diameter and length of line you use will depend on various factors including the size and weight of your boat. Generally, lengths for fore and aft dock lines are usually two-thirds of the boat length, and spring lines are usually equal to the length of the boat. Please see the accompanying chart for help selecting the right diameter and length of line.

|20' - 40'||1/2"|
|40' - 55'||5/8"|
