If you have a cottage and a boat or maybe just a boat you know how important it is to have some good rope on hand. Especially during these days of unsettled weather when wind storms, hurricanes and tornadoes can strike anytime and it appears, anywhere.

Knowing that you boat is secured, tied with strong rope is a good feeling, particularly if you are miles away in the city when the storm hits. Our pontoon boat has so many ropes on it that it takes me an extra 15 minutes to get it untied when we go out for a cruise. I use various types of rope, whatever I could find, some of it is better than the rest. Some of the best rope I found was this Paracord, Rothco 550lb. Type III Nylon Paracord which is 100% nylon, has a 550 Lb. Test – 7 strand core and comes in a diameter of 5/32-Inches. I have been using some paracord this year and find it excellent for securing our pontoon boat to the wharf and our floating wharf to the shore.
