Outhaul Line Replacement - How long? Other Advice?

I regrettably shortened my outhaul line and now seek to replace it.

Would anyone know how long it is?
What would be an ideal type of line to use? What do you wish you had?
Mine is 6mm wide, would there be an issue inside the boom making it 7mm so it might be fed through a clutch?

Re: Edson Steering Wheel

I got the kit to allow the brake to work again. For the life of me I cannot figure out the instructions, or mechanically how any of the parts they sent can exert a braking force. Has anyone installed the kit?

Wow, so expensive.
Has anyone founds a solution to the Tach sometimes maxing out?

Has anyone done this yet? What is involved?

Thanks!

Jib & Main Tips and Tricks w/OD sails

I am finding myself in several Jib & Main races this season, enjoying a Friday Pursuit race with a pre-set triangle course we can choose to take either clockwise or counterclockwise, which invariably includes a deep reach, downwind, or both. Would anyone have a polar for Jib & Main only? Any tips an...

How much time/effort/skill does it take to do a rebuild on the water pump?

Re: Alternator Belt Dust Fix

What are the benefits to make this worth $487? (for the kit).
Does anyone also buy the $72 belt buddy mentioned in the video?

Re: Mainsheet Swivel Strengthening Modifications Allowed

This important upgrade should be done without delay. I found all the existing metal parts to be fatigued, including one broken part, hidden from view. As I went to install the new kit, I found the base of the old U bracket broken in half, the two remaining pieces held together by a stretched and ben...

Re: clearcoat on sprit failing

A very reasonable $300 is the cost at my local auto shop to strip and paint the UV damaged end of the pole.

Re: clearcoat on sprit failing

Looks like ?
(i) scrape the paint off the portion of the pole that extends out of the J109, with a solid steel knife - hours and hours
(ii) sand with 320 grit
(iii) acetone
(iv) use awlgrip primer and base coat
