Re: Mainsheet Salsa


The Alberg 35 has what a 80' halyard? Figure for that go with 1/4" amsteel blue. You will also need to pick up about 10' of sampsons flavored ice cover. Just splice the cover over the amsteel starting a little before it enters the clutch, and runs down to where it will be winched up. For this setup, you would be looking at around $100, assuming you do the splices yourself; figure $150 if you pay a rigger to do them. Given that the splices take about 10 minutes for this set up total I would recommend just doing them yourself.

I also do this for any of my lines that have really hard wear points to protect the amsteel from abrasion.
