heck, 1.5mm is plenty strong, just a royal pain to splice.

While I haven't done a ton of splicing, Robline seems to be one of the easier ones to work with. I bought some 2.5mm, 8 plait(sp) dyneema from APS and that was a real bugger to work with.

I'm boatless.

I use 3mm, since most of the other rigging on my boat is 3mm. YMMV
