    Default Best Price on Anchor Line?

    Looking at buying some more anchor line. Prices for shipping online are outrageous. Looking for some 5/8 500-600ft.
    anyone know of a place in anchorage or seward where its around $200-$250?
    Also, do i really need 5/8 line for a 22ft seasport

    Arctic wire and rope should have it right around that price range. Polar wire might have some, I'm not sure though. And I don't think you need 5/8'' for that size boat. 1/2 should be plenty big. We've used 1/2'' on our old boat and our current one (28 footer and now a 25 footer.)

    Default 5/8 is too big

    Not sure if you have a windless or not, that might be a factor. In other words if you do and you currently have 5/8" you might not have a choice, but gorkon1 says 1/2' should be what your using for a 22' boat. I have 1/2" for a 32' 14k lb boat and am plenty fine.

    For a boat 22 ft. boat, I would go with 3/8. Plenty of holding power for a boat that size, and takes up less space. Agree that a windlass may change your options.

    Go with 1/2" braided line it will take up less room in a already small boat.

    Try AIH. They seem to have good prices on rope in general.
