Re: Centerboard cable/rope?

Delta-T, I'm not familiar with the Bristols, but couldn't you make a bag for the Amsteel that will be sitting on deck?

Amsteel/wire rope comes up through the cabin top about 2' behind the mast (sheave mounted at that location), runs straight to the Port side about 3' through another sheave mounted on it's side and runs 4' to the cockpit and is attached to a dedicated wire spooling winch. All that above the deck. No loose cable or rope to coil. 4 total sheaves involved, but no cable chafe or packing gland.

The rest of the cable down to the CB can be seen on the plans I provided in a link/thread I provided in post #9 of this thread.

Oh, so you just need to make a snap-on (or velcro-on) Sunbrella "bimini" for the runs that are out in the sun, then any possible issues with the Amsteel should be gone.
