2 Black Mega Braid Docklines 7/8' on 2040-parts.com
Reno, Nevada, United States
These dock lines are professionally spliced. The bitter end is whipped, and they have a 14" soft eye. I ordered them as 50', but as I measure them now, they come out to just over 48', including the eye material. I believe the rope used is New England Ropes, but I have no proof of that. They are very high quality dock lines, and appear perfect. I have never used these lines, but carried them in a locker on my boat "just in case". They appear as new. I periodically washed, and used Downey fabric softener on my lines, and included these lines in that maintenance schedule.
Mega Braid is a unique 12-strand nylon single braid, that absorbs kinks and is easily coiled or flaked. Developed specially for anchor and dock lines for larger yachts, it offers a combination of superb handling characteristics, excellent strength and controlled elongation in a torque free design.

Electric car start-up Tesla is restructuring its US operation and laying off around 100 staff, as the credit crunch continues to make life difficult for car companies big and small. It’s now on its fourth CEO in 12 months, as founder Elon Musk takes over from Ze’ev Drori. In an announcement on the chief exec’s blog, Tesla Motors said it would be ‘cash-flow positive’ within six to nine months – but only by increasing production and cutting operating costs.

The move is aimed at boosting sales, which have fallen 45.9 percent this year through February at Ford Motor and 39.4 percent industrywide as the U.S.

We have the first picture of the facelift for the 2013 Hyundai ix35 – which will debut at the Geneva Motor Show. Although it’s a small facelift. We’ve been expecting a facelift for the Hyundai ix35 to appear before Geneva, especially after we spotted an ix35 FCEV floating around in Korea last year with a new, more convincing nose.
