So Mark...Did you get that boat? You keep on posting tantalizing questions...

fwiw my preventer used to be a fender line - but have moved to a 1/2" nylon double braid (8,000lb?). Would also be interested in more experienced sailor "best practices".

Thought about the brake, but want to keep things simple and clutter-free. Otherwise too many lines!
