Dear Michael,
The original rope fender had a stainless steel wire core. Not a dyneema core.

Hi Michael,
It will give you a bench mark to work to. However,a new stainless steel wire would be a good idea to go when havi g a new rope fender made to fit your boat

Yes, that is what I thought, I wonder where mine came from.

Anyway, I suppose the Dyneema core can give us the length for a new s/s one.

Best

Michael

Our rope fender, which really is truly awful, appears to have an inner cable that looks like 'Dyneema' (or similar) with the cover removed. It appears to look like dark grey/ black strands.

Is this normal? I thought they usually had a s/s wire in them.
