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.

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.

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.

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.
