If you don't mind using nylon most electrical suppliers carry 600' foot roles at a good price. If you know an electrician or a supply salesman you can buy it pretty cheap. I think I paid about $60.00 for 600' feet not to long ago.

I beleive the electrical rope is a poly and not nylon. The problem with the yellow poly is that it gets small stickers on it that sticks in your hand when pulling it up.
There is a place in galveston that is a marine supply that you can by the nylon at a good price.

You can get it cheap at home depot. I have also been told that you can buy quality braided rope at cattle/livestock stores for about a quarter of the price of a boat store.

Holey Moley Mr. Sailfish, are you hand pulling 600 feet?

Yeah, I know, it's a pain to pull any amount of that stickery stuff but when I read your post I imagined you in the bow hand over handing for about an hour. YIKES!

If you know where the sailboat dock is at the Galveston Yacht Basin you can buy rope at the shrimp boat supply. The sailboat dock is across the channel from the drystack, fuel dock, yacht service. Really good prices.

West Marine has pretty fair prices on it. Also I was at the wal-mart in Conroe & they had a pretty good selection, the one on 105 past Papa's

We don't freehand 600' but even if you use an anchor ball if you are handling the poly you will get the stickers in your hand if you don't use gloves.

fishgetter, I sent you a PM. I have one bought around ten years ago as a spare, never taken out of the package. Professionally made with 15ft of galvanized chain. I believe it was 300ft, 9/16". Need to get rid of it; no longer have the boat.

Hillman's Hardware (boat supply) down on Dickinson Bayou has decent prices as well. Haven't bought any recently but they were always much cheaper than most.

The ABSOLUTE most inexpensive place I have ever bought anchor rope is at MARINE INDUSTRIAL SUPPLY, (formally the shrimp boat store) in Freeport Tx. They sell it by the pound. The Gores have been in business since before I was born and Im 52

Its also the most inexpensive place Ive ever bought chain.
