Re: Mind Your Hi-Tech Splices!!!

LMAO!

So how long do you expect a halyard to last in FL sun? Most racing boats change hi-tech halyards out every 4 years. I'd be pretty darn happy about a highly loaded string lasting for 10 years of abuse.

It probably was chafe, but honestly, how long do you want to keep your halyards? Would 15 years be ok? How about 20? And now it sounds like you're going to 're-splice' it? Just buy a new string already.
