Dock lines that last.

The high strength, double-braided constuction with a polyester exterior and Black NyCore™ makes these the best boat dock lines on the market. With MISSION lines you get added abrasion resistance, keeping your rope soft and pliable, season after season.

Dock lines with top-tier construction.

There are a lot of dock lines to choose from—but they’re not all created equally. From the whipped ends to prevent fraying, to the premium Black NyCore™ that runs throughout, we’ve put the focus on quality.

Spliced eye.

Each MISSION dock line has a spliced eye at the non-working end. This allows for quick and easy attachment to boat or dock cleats.

Five flavors.

Your boat looks good... Now your dock ropes do, too. We’ve created a fresh set of colored dock lines so you can have a little fun and dress up the rig with a hit of color.

Dock lines that reduce stress on cleats.

Black NyCore™ controls elongation and eases tension on attachment points. When it comes to boat rope, a little flex goes a long way.

Dock Lines: Frequently Asked Questions


What's the Proper Length/Size Dock Line to Buy?

You choose length/size based on your boat size and the application. You want a length that will give you maximum flexibility without creating unnecessary or cumbersome extra line. Use the Dock Line Sizing Chartbelow to find the proper length/size.

How Many Dock Lines Do I Need For My Boat?

Ideally, you will have at least two (2) bow/stern lines and two (2) spring lines on board. Reference the diagram below to learn the difference. 

What's the Difference Between Bow/Stern Lines & Spring Lines?

Bow / Stern Lines       

These lines firmly secure and hold the boat in place at the dock. They attach at both the bow and stern of the boat the adjacent dock cleats. 

 

Spring Lines      

These lines keep the boat parallel with the dock. They attach diagonally from a cleat at the boat’s center to dock cleats located near both ends (bow/stern) of the boat.

Why Does the Diameter of My Dock Lines Matter?

The cleats on your boat are designed to work with appropriately sized lines. Lines that are too big for your cleats can cause problems and make tying up difficult, which is why dock line sizing is important.
