Rigging material?
« on: January 22, 2010, 11:14:19 AM »

Anybody give me an idea of the favourite material to use to replace the standing rigging and the sail lines on my 575, please?

I don't know specifically about the 575. But if she is 575mm long, I would guess that 25kg Dacron would do it.
You can get this in spools from sailsetc.com.

No connection, just a happy customer.

Yep, she's 575mm long TT...I can pick that up from my local fishing tackle shop I think.

Thanks for your help..

Yer tackle shop will also carry swivels as well Rich and quick release "Hooks" like the old control line fittings.
