Marine Wire Rope
The unique chemistry of this top-quality rigging cable has been developed and perfected for sailboat applications. Each strand is preformed and polished to eliminate wire's tendency to collect carbon particles and become brittle. Exceptionally strong Loos wire rope is available in several different configurations and materials. We recommend Type 316 for use in Florida, the tropics, and other highly corrosive warm/salt water environments.
