Re: Mainsheet Salsa

Just measured the 92' piece of Salsa which is actually 82'. Still 8' longer than my existing sheet and a good deal but not 92'. Guess I should have not expected that a WM employee could actually measure something. The floor people had no clue as to the intended uses or specs which I had to locate for them in their own catalog Love that Amsteel. Replaced all my old wire lifelines 2 yrs ago with 3/8". Am looking for a new main halyard as well before next season and would like to use Dyneema/Amsteel to replace the old wire-rope line. Would like to use straight 3/8" Amsteel but it's too slippery by itself without a cover. By the time you get done buying the line and cover, might as well just buy Warpspeed or similar line. I'll probably wind up just replacing the wire-rope with same.

Just north of Stuart is the store I got this at, right on rt.1.
