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.

Hyundai arrives in Piccadilly Circus
If you want a clear sign of how mainstream Hyundai has become, the news that it’s taken over the iconic billboard display in Piccadilly Circus from Sanyo is as much evidence as you need. Piccadilly Circus is the UK version of Times Square, and the neon signs have been a splash of international colour washing over Eros for a century, during which time there have been just fifty brands showcasing their wares to the 50 million or more passing Londoners – and visitors – every year, not counting the millions more who see the signs on Piccadilly Circus postcards that still wing their way round the world. The new Hyundai spot – which has been the Sanyo space for the last 33 years – is the last of the spaces to rely on neon lights to get its message across.

Rowan Atkinson gets to play with his McLaren F1 and a Bugatti Veyron. Which is best? But much the same was said – and continues to be said – about the McLaren F1.

Preval Project Woody
Blake Z. Rong Preval calls this the "Fairy Tale Auto Ambitious Project Rover," whatever that means. For the low, low price of if you gotta ask, spraygun enthusiasts Preval will transform your Range Rover convertible -- all the rage in the Michelle Pfeiffer days -- into something resembling The Flintstone's Beach Buggy had they decided to cash in their 401ks and retire to Manhattan Beach.
