Re: Topping lift loads?

with the newer tech lines and stronger lines per size if you will Im a great fan pf going one size under...

the amount of friction lost and ease of sheeting in, hauling, pulling significantly reduced

for my boat for example its in the builders forums, that its recommended to downsize both to save some cost but for these reasons too

especially when going from wire rope halyards to all rope...

there is nothing worse in my mind than chubby lines stuffed in clumsy...

Merit 25 sold...Islander 36 still afloat? who knows...Im still in Columbus, and back...I think...jajajaja!!!!
