Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake
Just looking for a little advice... I need a new mainsheet, West Marine is having a sale today only and I'm not on the boat. It's an Alberg 35, end boom sheeting to traveler, boom length 15 ft, 4 part purchase, it's about 6 feet from the end of the boom to the traveler, so I'm thinking that if I figure with the boom all the way out, it's a triangle: 15 mast to end of boom, 21 feet from end of boom to traveler, that calculates to 25 foot on the hypotenuse, so about 100' of line plus some for a tail. Does that make sense? Thinking 110 ft of 15/16 Sta Set.
