Aamstrand nylon 3 strand twisted anchor lines feature a spliced metal thimble in varrying lengths and diameters.
Three strand twisted nylon rope lasts as much as 10 times longer than manila rope and 5 times longer than polypropylene rope. Long working life makes nylon rope very economical. This high strength resilient nylon rope has the ability to absorb sudden shock; as well as excellent flex and superb resistance to abrasion, chemicals, and marine organisms. It is unaffected by mildew and rot and can be stored when wet. Some of the many uses include marine dock and anchor lines, shipping and industrial work, vehicle tow rope, tie-downs, farm and livestock usage. This rope is easy to splice and is very common for general purpose use. The first synthetic fiber rope manufactured.
Excellent economical rope for windlass
Posted by Darin Brown on Nov 15th 2016
After losing my anchor on my last boating trip, I set out to replace the entire rode and anchor combination. Although I have a windlass, the previous owner of the boat hadn't configured the windlass properly so the chain had to be stored on the deck.
Long story short, I looked at pre-spliced rope/chain combinations (I needed G4 galvanized chain). The cost of buying it pre-spliced doubled the overall cost.
So I took a chance and ordered this economical rope and some G4 chain. I was able to splice the rope and chain myself in about 20 minutes following a youtube video.
End state: an inexpensive rope/chain combination that now feeds into my anchor locker through the windlass.
Overall I am very happy with the rope. It's only been used a couple of times, so time will tell on how long it holds up but initial impressions are it is a good quality rope.
