Hello folks,
I was wondering if anyone has had any dealing with a company in Canada that sells NovaTech XLE line on E-Bay.
It seems rather reasonable. 100 feet for 40 bucks delivered for the 1/4 inch.
Seems reasonable for what I need.
Thanks, Russ

Hello Russ

I live in Alberta Canada which is far from Nova Scotia. I have not dealt with this company but they are reputable.

here is their website address

http://www.novabraid.com/rope/xle_performer.html

If I were you, I would do a little research on strength and such and see if it meets your specific needs.

Thanks Pickle,
I am down south of you in Idaho. Their 1/4 inch line is rated at 1950 pounds which is more than what I need. I have a Bayliner 18 foot buccaneer and a Clipper flush deck 21. I am going to try my hand a building a roller furler for the 18 footer and that will be plenty strong for control lines.
Summer will be here soon.

Being a retired cheap guy, I've bought and used a variety of different lines from Harbor Freight and they worked out well. They have different sizes and colors - I use the red color for my furler lines, blue for reefing the main sail and green for raising the main. It helps remove the confusion when I have a first time visitor on board - I just yell, "Pull on the green rope!!"

Hi Terry,
I am a fan of Harbor Freight and have many of their tools. I have had bad luck with the rope I have purchased there. It is ok for general stuff, but it doesn't hold up out of doors very long. I have had it just literally fall apart in my hands.
Some of the stuff from E-bay is fairly cheap, but designed for the elements. 35 to 40 cents a foot is decent for strong weather resistant line. I use 1/4 inch stayset on my 21 footer for the halyards and sheets both. My boat had cable and rope halyards. They are all the 1/4 inch stuff now, and seem to work well.
I am going to re do the 18 footer this summer and was looking into the Novatech stuff from Canada. It is quite a bit cheaper than stayset and plenty strong. Lots of colors too. That way I can also color code the different lines. That will help me too.

Make sure they don't have much stretch either. I have tried some HF lines also but they stretch and make things difficult and possibly unsafe at times.
