Lewmar Premium 3-Strand Anchor Rodes - Boat Marine Grade with Rope & Galvanized Chain
Lewmar's 3-strand rope is an economical choice for your windlass rode. Keep in mind, the windlass does not stow the rode in the anchor locker - gravity does. So make sure you have ample depth and volume in your anchor locker to accommodate the length of rode you have chosen.
There are several grades of 3-Strand nylon rope available. Always use a premium windlass grade rope in a windlass. Do not use economy 3-strands; the lay can be softer or harder than a proper windlass grade medium lay. When using ½" 3-strand nylon, double check that diameter is ½" (.500) in diameter or slightly larger. Economy 3-strands are generally less than ½" in diameter which work poorly in ½" gypsies.
3-Strand is typically 20-30% less expensive than premium plaited anchor line.
3-Strand line, when used in salt water, will stiffen over time. It can be soaked in a bucket of fresh water and fabric softener overnight (the longer the better) to bring back a more flexible condition. If this does not yield acceptable results, it should be replaced.
