Need a jib sheet

I need a jib sheet for a 1983 27' cal. Lake sailing/day sailing only. What do you recommend, and where do you recommend I buy it?

Thanks,

Matt

Ummmmmm...that's a sail, not a sheet, modul8.

Matt, any decent double braid will work - StaSet is not bad. 7/16" would be a good size. If you go any smaller it can be hard on the hands. I order all my line from Layline, but you can find it cheaper elsewhere (particularly something as common as Sta Set). Google or Ebay will quickly locate it, I'm sure.

Ok. Now that I'm righteous.

Are all of these the same, except for color?

I can't get the link to work. Sailnet has funky URLs. If you would, copy and paste into your browser and see if these are all the same?

Thanks

A jib sheet? One? Usually when it's time to replace one, it's time to replace the other.

I agree with Jason: 7/16" Sta Set should do ya. Dunno where to tell you to get it. We bought ours, new jib sheets and mainsheet, last season, when they had bulk rope on sale at the local West Marine.
