3 Strand Manillo Polypropylene Line


A specially formulated twisted polypropylene rope that is much stronger, has half the weight, and costs less per foot than manila rope. It is resistant to rot and abrasion and is not damaged by petroleum products, mildew, marine growth or many chemicals.

Hi Chuck, I thought you might like to see what I did with my most recent order from Duckworks. I'm making traditional boat fenders out of the Manillo rope I ordered.

Still working out the proportions. This one is a bit skinny, but it's getting there.
