Here is the source. Different marine suppliers stock the larger sizes.

I haven't. Guess I am still clinging to my earliest memories of "the rabbit comes out of the hole...." to want to deviate. I can tie the bowline in my sleep, in the dark, under duress, etc. Figured I would screw up a new knot for a similar application, but I will give it a look.

It is an old Coast Guard Joke. We had the Dragon Bowline, the keys to a sea chest, prop wash, etc.. I use bowlines all the time when working around the house...

Not a kinetic style rope, but what about Amsteel Blue? Some amazing strength in a small rope and the splicing is well documented on youtube. I've only worked in the 7/64 and 1/8 sizes but it's very easy to work with. 1/2 inch runs about 4$+ per foot. You could easily make some dog bones in long lengths for recovery. It has little to no stretch though. It's used heavily in the hammock camping community for suspension lines where stretch is a no-no.

That is a very common synthetic line for winches. Mine is from Master Pull. They have a good comparison between the brands:

Anything that makes it onto youtube is a good idea. It's the stuff that doesn't get videotaped that shouldn't have happened.
