Re: Double braid rope eye splice woes

why do you have eye splices in genoa sheets? there is no need for them! If this is coming out of the eye of the splice looks to me like you didn't properly milk the splices before the lock...

Re: 1989 Hunter 40 - A million questions.

Interesting way of doing it. I've never seen it done that way, I've always seen the controll lines led along the boom. This way is simpler, and les noisey and causes fewer holes in the mast!

Re: 1989 Hunter 40 - A million questions.
