    Question Dock Lines

    A while ago I purchased some 1/4" nylon floating dock line with a loop in the end. Another big feature is that you can tie one end to the plastic-loop on your RXP or RXT and the stuff the remaidner of the rope in the glove compartment and then close it. Only the 1/4" will work, 3/8" is too big.

    My problem is that I can't remember where I bought it!

    Any help would be appreciated.

    TNX,

    Phil

    I just have a 1/4" braided line about 6 ft. long. It's always tied to one of the loops under the bars and i just coil it up an hang it on the hood pin. There's near an inch of space under the hood catch when it's closed.

    Cheap Wal Mart ski rope is close to 1/4 inch, I think.

    They have a lot of rope, but none that floats.

    That's the stuff... now if they could just put a loop in the end we would be in business.
