I would get these.. http://www.overtons.com/modperl/prod...d&merchID=4005

I got the cheaper ones with Mastercraft and they really take a beating on the interstate. So I take them of until I get the to boat launch and then put them on. I could see them disintegrating after 100 miles or so.

and I have a couple of these... http://www.overtons.com/modperl/prod...1&merchID=4006

Those are good dock lines but 1/2" is huge - 3/8" is plenty for a MC

I use these adjustable lines from Ronix. They work great.

Our boat rarely sits in the water for any length of time, so my dock lines are old 15' sections from my slalom ropes. As for the guide post covers, got the ones from mastercraftbydesign, and they are crap. The nylon is fine, but the writing on them mars the crap out of the rub rail if it comes anywhere near them when driving the boat on. As my 13 year old daughter pulls it on as well as anyone, and always touches, I wish I had bought plain nylon ones.
My $0.02, your results may vary. I also bought a set for my brother, so he may weigh in with a vastly different experience.

I use these for dock lines:

3/8 is plenty strong. I have 25' as I like to do a spring line (front-to-back) configuration when we have our week long cabin and have a slip. So just depends upon what you want to do. A little on the pricey side but three years and they are still like new.
