Right well since i'll make my voice heard if i'm not happy with a service, i'll also compliment someone who gives great service.
I was looking all over the place to get some rope for the boat. I decided on 13mm Navy Dockline as it seemed to suit what I wanted. Got in touch with Boatropes ( eBay UK Shop - Yacht ropes: Anchorplait, Boat ropes, Parelli
) and asked for a quote
I wanted the following:
9m line with splice at the end
7m line with splice at the end
6m line with splice at the end
Total would be £51 including the £11 P+P airmail to Ireland. I was delighted when package arrived and see that the postage alone was £10.81 - Often been overcharged postage to Ireland with the seller nabbing a bit of extra cash from it
When the ropes arrived I was really pleased with the quality of the work carried out. See for yourself:
See the last pic, amazing hand-work IMHO. He accepts PayPal and has very good communication which is important to me.
I think he does more rope than he has on eBay so if you're after new rope, do your research and drop him an e-mail for a quote. I found him considerably cheaper than other UK outlets
