However, I’d like to add a second Firefly under the table to ensure we have adequate power for distance races, especially double-handed races. It is a very tight fit but might be able to be done with some modifications to the cable access points. Further complicating things is figuring out how to mount a battery monitor shunt within that space.

This may be the problem: viewtopic.php?t=1506

And if it is, just taking it all apart and re-beading will not fix it. I just found notes from the first owner indicating that it had been "fixed" that way before, and, of course, it leaked again, so check for this problem first.

I've had 10mm Marlow D2 Classic spinnaker sheets for 5 years and they've worn well. Hardly any cover fraying. The classic neutral color sometimes looks a little dirty, and certainly doesn't have that grand-prix coloring. D2 race might look a little more modern. I didn't go higher tech as I wanted a thicker diameter line for hand and at some point you are just way over-spec. D2 doesn't stretch all that much even when seriously boning on the jib. It's a little stiff compared to the original spec line, and will come out of the self tailer if you don't pay a little attention, but I'd expect any Dyneema core line to be the same or likely worse. Very rarely, if ever, kinks in the turning block. I'd just put an eye on the working end and make up some soft shackles to attach to the jib.

For the main halyard, I'd get the best line you can. Even 7/16" 11mm Yale Crystalyne (Vectran core) creeps a lot for me when racing with a North 3di Endurance main in heavy air. I have two cabintop clutches for the halyard and a Sharpie mark shows that it's not slipping down there. Some of it may be rig movement & compression, but I haven't sorted this out. I'll often see a little drooping at the head after an hour of racing, and have to adjust the halyard tension quite a bit. Afterward it's generally fine. I like the Tylaska H12 shackle here, but I don't have much experience with it yet. The lower spec shackle (maybe a Wichard, I dunno) I have on another halyard has deformed a bit over time and the captive pin is a little annoying to operate.

I think I have a 11mm Vectran jib halyard as well. No issues.

I've no informed opinions on spinnaker sheets and halyards. The ones that came with the boat a decade ago are still kinda barely hanging in there, but I'm really asking for trouble.]]>

The J/105 fleet is growing, while there are often no 2 of any other type of J-boat in a given race.
