  10. Nah, most manufacturers have a 4 year expiry date nowadays.
  11. Right.. 1/ chafe should not happen, agreed. 2 masts were built at same time and my crew tracked down the other, guess what same problem.. 2/ room inside the rig, bugged if I know. Suspect when I remove the rig and remove spreaders we'll have a better idea ( in the meantime i want to go sailing with limited reduction to sailing time and budget) 3/ agreed with mast, maybe sell all clutches and replace with decent clamcleats for those lines that may need instant release The two lines that parted, one was Italian, the other Kiwi. The rest that had major wear were all Kiwi. Hurricane rigging put a chafe guard on the 3/4 and main halyard (Italian&Kiwi) in Wellington. I trimmed both in Napier due to wear (definately slowed things down though).
  12. Cool idea, will pinch this thankyou.
  13. Alright KM, What caused failures? All the halyard boxes had sharp edges, not rounded off in any manner. The main halyard also too tight a radius, would suit 6mm more. Why go smaller? Both sets of riggers had issues getting the halyards past spreader connection point. Also more space inside to add another 3/4 halyard. Clutches etc? I have some 4-8mm spinlocks, should do the job. Two would need to be replaced. Why 6mm? Used 6mm for cunni, 3x reefs and outhaul. No issues with harken st winches or in the basic english clamcleats as well. Reef lines a wee bit fluffy but nothing major after 1200miles or so. Agree with mouse line, just added it to my to do list!
  14. Just pondering, after losing 2 halyards down the mast and replacing several others during the RNI2020. Is it viable to replace all my 8mm dyneema double braid with 6mm? Maybe with an exoticish cover instead of polyester. My thinking comes about after we couldn't mouse a replacement at sea and it was a pain in the arse at Mangonui (thanks to the Edwards clan for sorting it in the end there). Then in Wellington the 8mm end got stuck at the spreader junction and again it was more fantastic riggers sorting it out again (Hurricane rigging). The fault lies in the sheeve boxes and they will be fixed eventually but in the meantime I have an issue of not much room inside spar (carbon job) and would like to add an extra 3/4 spin halyard for peels etc eventually. Opinions please.....boat Ross 930
