Marlow Blue Ocean Spliced Dockline
The Marlow Blue Ocean Spliced Dockline is constructed 100% from recycled plastic bottles. Helping to combat ocean plastic pollution is important to the sailing community and using this dock line offers customers a chance to play their part. Recycled plastic bottles are transformed into a strong polyester rPET yarn.
This eco-conscious dockline is also recyclable at the end of its life. It is available pre-spliced in 12mm(1/2"), 14mm(9/16"), and 16mm(5/8") diameters in lengths from 6m(20ft), 9m(25ft), and 12m(39ft).
The unique construction offers the same popular attributes as Marlow’s regular Dockline. Good shock absorption and abrasion resistance with a soft flexible feel and zero strength loss or shrinkage.
To look after your premium eco-friendly Dockline:
- Keep it out of the sun and correctly coiled to avoid any unnecessary twist being added to the rope when storing.
- Wash saltwater out of your Dockline once every month by soaking it in a bucket of freshwater to remove the build up of salty crystals which can cause internal abrasion.
- Splice instead of knot. A well spliced rope retains 90% strength whereas a knot can reduce strength by up to 50%.
