Still a big fan of nylon for snubbers. Main problem is the heat buildup under stress so I no longer use the chafe hose in bad weather as the rain helps cool the line. Visually inspect and replace as needed.

Chris that's quit a setup on your boat. Not many boats are capable of carrying that much weight in the bow. How are your splices done? Came across this link while doing some research on jack lines. It's amazing what a knot can do and how resilient nylon is compared to dyneema

Blue Steel braid makes an excellent stern tie rope, 5/8" is good for about 12,000 tensile and it floats, is very UV resistant.
