I saw a couple of boats tied up to the dock at the Moomba Jam this last weekend with what looked like a stretch rope. Might have had the loops on both ends for easy attaching to the cleats. Anybody use these or recommend these? Have a recommendation on manufacturer or length?
They look convenient for a quick tie off.

You can make these yourself very cheaply and easily. Get a splicing tool (called a "fid") and look at some sites like this one. You can make exactly what you want so it works for where you like to tie up. I used to make my own ski ropes, etc. like this.

Dude, I was a boy scout, I know how to do an eye splice, lol. I've actually made a bunch of ropes like that, but I was thinking the stretchy ones would be nice for the quick tie up.
Thanks for the Academy direction, I'll check it out next time I'm in there.2011 Mobius LSV

Be careful on what you use to attach to the bumper/ball. Last weekend a bumper that was attached with a carabiner type device scratched up my gell coat and rub rail.2013 MOJO

I got some of those from the Moomba/Supra store. I won a gift certificate from the Supra Summer Test Drive event and bought the fam some shirts and had some left over credit so I bought the Moomba dock lines. I haven't been able to use them yet since they just came last week. They were pricey from the Moomba store and I wouldn't have bought them if I didn't have the gift credits. They are well made I just don't think are worth $26 each. $15 maybe. We'll see how they work. They are looped on both ends and have a bungee line inside the rope kinda like an anchor buddy if any of you have or have seen one of those.2011 Mobius LSV 325HP EFI
