A jib sheet? One? Usually when it's time to replace one, it's time to replace the other.I need a jib sheet for a 1983 27' cal.
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.Lake sailing/day sailing only. What do you recommend, and where do you recommend I buy it?
What is the advantage to that? (I assme, then, that you have either a hanked-on foresail or a furler? We have a Tuff Luff system, so a single line would be disadvantageous.)I use ONE BIG long line for my sheets.
I had noticed our boat came with two sets of lines for jib sheets, and kind of wondered why they were different diameters. Then it occured to me the smaller-diameter line was probably for use with the light #1.Plus's and minus's to both. A larger diam is easier on the hands. Smaller diam is easier for the sail to catch zephyrs and lift when need be, due to the lighter wt of the line itself.
Some are of the opinion that for just cruising and putzing-around, a line with some stretch is advantageous--as a "shock absorber."I choose to go the the higher tech line route, no complaints.
