What is the perfect painter rope?

The painter rope on any boat is an essential tool. It helps secure your boat to the launching trolley and helps you launch the boat, especially if you are sailing single handed.

The rope needs to be small, lightweight, long enough to reach and most importantly, we think it should float.

That's why for a painter rope we recommend Floatline.

Floatline is available in 3 diameters from Sailing Chandlery:

About Floatline

  • 8 Plait Single Braided Rope
  • Multi-Filament Polyprop Material
  • High Visibility
  • Floats

With the rope floating it makes it very easy when launching and recovering, especially when you sail a boat by yourself. This floatline rope is also very light so can easily be tied up and secured to the boat when you go sailing.
