I imagine 3/8 will be fine but what do you guys use? How long should each line be to be safe? And where is the best place to buy it?

I also have many sizes and lengths due to different dock set ups where we go. I have found that a the lines that have elastic work good. Simply put a carbeauner on one end, use one line at the bow lift point and one at the stern lift point and connect to the dock. Similar to this

I use 1/2" at my dock. Only use 3/8 inch for short term docking like at a restaurant or something.
