Rope and Cordage

Rope and Cordage

Whether you’re tying down sails or securing parts of your boat, you need high-quality ropes to keep it running smoothly. At Boating & RV, we offer a large range of rope and cordage that will help you keep your boat performing at a high level.

Polyester Ropes

Polyester Double Braid is the standard for boating and marine applications, providing a soft yet incredibly strong rope that’s ideal for sheet lines and hands-on activities. It’s also waterproof and UV-resistant, allowing it to withstand even the harshest marine environments.

If you need polyester rope with less stretch and a stronger weave, then the Low Stretch Polyester Rope is what you want. This braided polyester rope is designed with a tight weave and comes pre-stretched, providing a stronger and more stable line of rope.

For more general applications, you can use Plaited Lacing Cords or VB Cords, which are excellent all-round braided ropes designed for general use.

Nylon and Silver Ropes

Silver rope is one of the most widely used ropes for general boat use, providing a cost-effective line suitable for a variety of boating activities. We supply standard 3-strand silver rope as well as polyethylene silver rope that features extra UV-resistance.

If you’re looking for stronger lines, then nylon rope is one of your best choices. It offers superior strength and high resistance to the elements, making it the ideal line for anchoring and mooring. We offer both standard nylon rope and special 3-strand nylon ropes so that you can choose the right one for your needs.

High-Performance Ropes

When you need high strength and performance in your lines, you need to use ropes that enhance these specific features.

If superior strength and durability are your priorities, then Spectra is among your top choices. Spectra rope is one of the strongest ropes available today, providing up to ten times the strength of steel at the same weight. This makes it ideal for activities that require maximum strength and minimal stretch.

Dyneema also offers similar performance capabilities, providing high strength and low stretch features that make it ideal for halyards, control lines and sheets. This Australian-made rope also comes in eye-catching colours for better visibility.

We also provide ropes from Liros, which offers low stretch and good grip features that are ideal for control lines and halyards. It’s made with a strong Dyneema core for minimal stretch and covered with polyester for better grip and control. It also comes in different colours for easier visibility and styling with your boat.

Other Ropes

If you’re looking for maximum stretch in your ropes, then shock cords are what you need. We stock Australian-made Shock Cords that feature a tough rubber core with durable polyester cover for extra durability. We also have high-quality Whipping Twines for securing your rope ends and preventing them from unravelling. And if you need something to use for water sports and leisure, we also have Ski Lines available.

Tools and Accessories

Aside from rope and cordage, we also supply a variety of accessories for handling and managing these items on board. We have hot knife blades for the quick cutting or sealing of ropes and splicing fids for holding them in place or separating rope strands. We also stock a variety of thimbles that will help keep your rope and cordage strong while in use.
