updating victoria through hull roller wanted
« on: April 09, 2018, 12:38:53 PM »

Bought a victoria a couple of weeks ago and noticed the giudes for the sail lines are groved , i think it is something to do with the lines been braid and acting as a cutting effect on the guides.
So the plan is to fit one of theose through hull rollers in and make it an elastic tension rig if that what its called?,
but it's finding one . This is where you chaps come in , where can i get one please.

Nylet Sails will have what you need.
When I modded my Victoria, I epoxied a couple of
Beads into the deck holes and they have lasted
best part of 10 years.
Bought a bag of them from Boyes for a pound!
