A utility cord with nearly as many uses as duct tape or zip ties.

New England Ropes Braided Polyester Cord, otherwise known as "Dac Cord", has nearly as many uses on your boat as duct tape. It's a low-stretch cord that’s great for flag halyards, foredeck netting or light-air spinnaker sheets.

We use it for messenger lines for removing a halyard from a mast, anchor rodes for junior sailing markers, halyards for an El Toro—the applications are limitless. 50' hanks are connected to form a continuous piece if you order more than one. 


  • Best use: Utility cord, flag halyards
  • Construction: Double braided polyester
  • Breaking strength: 530lb.
  • Stretch: 8% at 20% of breaking strength
