Outhaul Line Replacement - How long? Other Advice?

Post by Dan Corcoran » Wed Sep 18, 2019 7:58 pm

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?

I replaced the outhaul on Growth Spurt this year and am happy with the result. I have 4mm spectra inside the boom for the 4:1 purchase; the spectra is then spliced to 6mm endura braid near the end of the purchase and run to base of mast and aft to one of the clutches that accepts 6mm line. You really need to get in there to get the right lengths.

70 feet is the answer for Hull #332. Add 6 feet to make it to the cabin top clutch.
