Replaced cable on marine winch for 17 ft jon boat - used 5/16" 1200 lb capacity para max cord & it works great!
Paramax Utility Cord is a beefier version of 550 paracord. As a kernmantle rope, it has a twisted nylon core with a 32-strand nylon sleeve. Nylon rope has many benefits that include good resistance to rot, mold, and mildew, as well as to ultraviolet light. It is also very flexible compared to other rope materials. Paramax is a smooth braided rope that has a high abrasion resistance. Because of this, it is good for use in pulley systems. Its ability to absorb shock makes it a suitable rope for light-duty towing. Other uses include, camping, fishing, cargo nets, emergency preparedness. Keep some of this highly versatile rope in your bug-out-bag or roadside emergency kit.
