New Running Rigging - Line Suppliers?

Someone had mentioned a good supplier of line that was good quality and very reasonably priced, but I can't seem to find the thread. Grateful for any good sources (stateside).

Thanks!

Search yacht braid on eBay. There's a guy out of New England that sells it for about 45 cents per foot. Seems to be the exact same stuff I bought at West Marine for 99 cents per foot. He only lists spools of 100' or 300', etc. but if you contact the seller, he can set you up with custom lengths or colors.

The seller's name is dswrope and he also has an eBay store http://stores.ebay.com/DSW-Rope-and-Cordage

I do remember pricing anchor line one time on Ebay and seeing it was in Texas.

Very cheap!
