Re: Vang line slipping in cleat
It does seem like the line is too small, but it's the same size as the line that was there before and that line worked fine. Maybe the old line was stiff and coarse from age.
I'm not on zero-budget, but dang the list of stuff to buy just keeps getting longer.
I'll try taking it apart and lubing it and perhaps banging the bits a bit closer together, just for the fun of fiddling with things, but I'll also put a new Harken cleat on the list for next time I order a batch of stuff.
