Dutchman Flaking System

[couldn't delete - found answer on the manufacturers website, disregard below]

We have had a pretty nasty storm come through this afternoon. When I got to the boat after the marina call to double check the fender status as one had popped out and hull went a little bouncy bouncy - I discovered that the topping lift didn't seem right as the boom was on the bimini.

Closer inspection revealed that both sides of the most forward Dutchman guide lines had popped off. I imagine it would of happened sooner or later as there was evidence of chaffing pretty much all along the top most parts of the plastic filament.

So question I ponder the experts ...Could I use that lite weight thin spectra line instead as a replacement? Any one have any experience with it and things I should be wary of?

JOdy-

If you found the answer on the manufacturer's website, you could post what you found here...in case anyone else needs that info.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I did - I provided the documentation link But yes, one may use Spectra - or if they read the manual, you can get instructions on how to get a free replacement of those particular lines. The lines themselves can be purchased at any hardware / fishing store just do not use the weed waker variety. I am going to use the spectra myself for longevity reasons.

I ended up replacing the line with Marlow VC type. Its the same width, its higher breakage, and if it shreds its 12 bucks for 50 feet of it. And its colored..

The drawbacks to it is that it as not as knot resistant as the filament used stock with it. But, for the cost - I am willing to see how it works out...

Hi Jodi,
You posts on the dutchman were very helpful.

By the way, I noticed you have a Barberis Show 38. I am considering buying a 1983 Barberis Show 34. Do you have any suggestions, information, cautions, links? I am having a difficult time getting much information about these boats.
Thanks, Mark
