I'm with others in that I cleaned out the new Alaskan Sea-Duction and found long lines, short lines and a big box full of more lines. I now have permanent dock lines and traveling lines.

Rope while stored. Lines when used to tie off the boat.

Rope or line, it`s like torches/flashlights, within reason you can`t have too much.

lets see...
In the anchor locker, 200ft of nylon attached to 220ft of chain.
mooring lines, home set, docking set, two older sets for spares, each set 2x 30' + 2 x 15', so 90'x4. 360'
tow line 100'
shore tie 500'
hoisting (mast and davits) 4x30, 120'
dinghy anchor, 100'
odds and ends, another 100'
total: 1500'

re mold: my anchor chain rests on my nylon rode. The nylon is perpetually wet, in a non-ventilated locker. No mold. Go figure.

Every time I pick up the Coot from the KKMI boatyard after maintenance/repair, they offer me the choice of a braided-nylon line about 20 feet in length or a bottle of wine. First accepted the line but now the bottle since I'm "up to here" on lines. The last bottle of wine "cost" me four BOAT bucks. The bottle is in the right foreground:

It's rope even aboard a boat until it gets employed in the operation of running the boat. Then it's a line.

Eric, gimme a break! I don't have a bell, so there won't be a need for a rope onboard.
