Relaxing lines from a spool


Recommended Posts

So I started in on rigging my boat today.  When I went to take some rope line off the spool it kept the shape of the spool having a slight bend every inch or so.  I tried just smoothing it out with my hand but it kept those bends pretty well.


How do you relax the line?  Should I soak it? Or iron it? Or soak, hang and weight it?  Or does it not matter since it will be pulled taut anyway?
