Rope needed

Can anyone recommend me a rope supplier that will sell me a specific length with a loop spliced on each end ?

I've found loads that sell lengths, but actually just want a 3m bit with two small loops on the end.

Cheers.

"U Boat" Chandlery in Gosport would make that up for you and their prices are good as well.

These will make you anything you want for peanuts, including Dyneema winch ropes, stainless steel ratchet straps, the whole shooting match. They are in Wakefield West Yorks, about as far away from the sea as you can get, so don't charge yachtie prices, only proper Yorkshire prices

Non Yachtie prices - thats what I like.

I was also looking for a hose and reel to keep on the boat to wash it down while in the marina - all the chandlery shop prices were about 20-30.

The garden center was 8 for the same thing
