    I had the line for aboot 2 years now and I just got the thimble from UPS yesterday:D. I took it to work and spliced the line myself and had one of the Boatswains safety stitch it so it would not pull out, it is nice to have a BMC in your back pocket:D. It is 125' of 3/8 amsteel blue:D. Total cost $44.00 I also have a billet aluminum fairlead from ATOR to change out my roller type.

    It was purchased by a small boat and they got the wrong size. They got 3/8 and needed 5/8. The BMC new I wheeled and threw it away so I got it:D. The $44 was for the thimble shipped to my door:D. Technically I have aboot $95 with the thimble, fairlead and line.
