Got Spectra??

After doing a few searches I ran across this in a web page
High Tensile Rope Replacement for Spectra
Due to current world events and the on going war in Iraq there is a severe shortage of Spectra leaving suppliers scrambling to meet military requirements. This has left the civilian market searching for a reliable alternative
First the gas prices and now this! Sounds like we may be headed for a repeat of the 40's. What's next gas stamps?
I want to replace the centerboard rope with 3/8" Spectra. Anybody have a source that sells in moderately short lengths?
