Re: Splicing different sized double briad

Yes, you can do a load bearing end to end splice. The one that is linked above is once for double braid polyester line. It won't work with high modulus line.

My suggestion would be the same as...

Re: Dyneema (or similar) jacklines

Thanks Rich. I understand the reasoning behind the breaking loads. But not so much the reasoning behind the "worst possible scenario". Lets say you have a sailor on a tether and the worst does...

Re: Dyneema (or similar) jacklines

Do either of you have any evidence that injury from a 6'/2m tether while sailing? Besides just being sore? And documentation at all? Seems that the Volvo ocean racers or Vende racers or any IMOCA...

Re: Dyneema (or similar) jacklines

I'm confused, I thought we were talking about falling off a boat? :confused:
Not a dead drop 20+ feet.

Re: Dyneema (or similar) jacklines

And what is the industry standard for this? At what load do the loops break away? I do agree with you that the loops are not meant to be load bearing. But I haven't seen many "storage" loops on a...

Re: Dyneema (or similar) jacklines

Do NOT do this. Put a short loop of line through the bail of the snap shackle. Connect the other tether to that. That way, when you release the snap shackle, the tether stays with the boat, and you...

Re: Hunter b&r rig chain plates

How was this verified?

Gelcoat is no problem. If it goes through into the glass, then it's a serious problem.

Re: VOR broken mast

Production, maybe. Design? Probably not. Southern spars is a leading manufacturer in the business, and the boat's rigging was from another supplier. So the rigging could've failed first, and then...

Re: VOR "Chinese gybe"

Hard to avoid something you don't know is there. Doesn't excuse the mistake, but we can come up with better jokes than that. :)

Re: Spreader Issues

+1 to everyone else. I'm also a rigger.
You need to pull the stick and get it fixed, have the rigger inspect the other spreaders while it's down.

To be honest that picture frightens me. Someone...

Re: halyard corrosion

All modern race boats with high halyard loads. They use halyard locks with remote release triggers.

What's the load? And how is it applied? What kind of safety factor are you looking for?

Re: Setting up a spinnaker

For a 35' boat, and doing mast/bow on a 36.7 for the past 3 years, you'll need sheets and guys if it's over 10 knots. Can it be done without guys? Yes, but why go through the headache every time...

Re: Keel or deck stepped?

Comanche, 100' racing maxi. As bob said before, as long as they're designed right, either setup is fine. The actual section on that boat is scary thin.

Re: Trouble pointing in Alerion 28

There is a lot of good advice, but if you're tacking through 130* of true wind, then something very basic is wrong.

Try a lot more mainsheet and move the traveler up. Boom should be on centerline...
