Re: Line from the hardware store?

Go ahead and use it. As long as it doesn't have too much stretch it should work fine. I've found some double braid line at hardware stores that has worked well for me. I attach the topping lift to the boom before I attach it to the mast and bend the main sail. Then when you raise the main sail it will take the tension off the topping lift.
