Jeanneau Sun Fast 3200 2:1 Dog Bone Halyard Connector

Posted on November 27, 2015

5mm Hampidjan Dynice Dyneema Dog Bone Loop 2:1 Halyard Connector w/ Ronstan Low Friction Ring

Here we have a neat little 2:1 Dyneema dog bone halyard connector for a local Jeanneau Sun Fast 3200, maintained by Macquart Marine. Constructed from multiple wraps of Hampidjan Dynice 75 and encased in 52-carrier Dyneema Chafe Sleeving, with a Ronstan low friction ring stitched in to form the 2:1 component, this shackle has a SWL of 2,000kg and a break strength of over 4,000kg - load matched to a 10mm Dyneema main halyard. The loop is light weight, compact and extremely strong, and can be put together for 40-50% of the price of many stainless steel 2:1 halyard shackles in the marketplace that have matching load capabilities. Jared and I have worked on a number of interesting projects together since splicing this guy up, so watch this space for more joint projects between Wet Tech Rigging and Macquart Marine in the near future.

10mm x 40m Yellow Spliced Dyneema Spinnaker Halyard w/ Covered Eye Splice - Lagoon 3812mm x 35m Blue Spliced Dyneema Main Halyard w/ Dyneema Chafe Sleeve Tip - Lagoon 38

Here we have a main and spinnaker halyard replacement for a cruising Lagoon 38 catamaran. The spinnaker halyard is 10mm Dyneema-cored line with full covered eye splice and short eye to suit direct attachment into the customer's existing halyard shackle/spinnaker sock. The main halyard is 12mm Dyneema-cored line with a 3m Dyneema Chafe Sleeve tip to cover both first and second reef. The line has been finished with a short full cover eye in the DCS tip to once again connect straight in to the existing halyard shackle. This project was ordered, paid for, built and sent on the same day, for express interstate next day delivery to meet this customer's deadline. All part of the service if required here at Wet Tech Rigging!

6mm x 100mm Covered Dyneema Loop

6mm Covered Dyneema Loop Hampidjan Dynice
6mm Covered Dyneema Loop Hampidjan Dynice

The humble covered Dyneema loop provided a bit of a "get out of jail" for this owner, who busted an old spinnaker halyard shackle and purchased a replacement that did not have enough length to suit the pressed eye in the spinnaker. To save purchasing new hardware, we have spliced them up an 8mm finished diameter Dyneema loop (strength matching that of their 10mm spinnaker halyard) which spends it's life slip-knotted onto the pressed spinnaker halyard eye and allows the halyard shackle to be connected directly to the other end of the loop. Consisting of multiple wraps of 4mm Hampidjan Dynice 75, and encased in 52-carrier Dyneema Chafe Sleeving for improved abrasion resistance and longevity, this was a reliable and cost-effective solution to what may have otherwise been an expensive hardware replacement exercise.

Posted on September 29, 2015

2 x 10mm x 26m Yellow Spliced Dyneema SK75 Spinnaker Sheets w/ Dyneema Chafe Sleeve Tip & Urethane Rope Coat Tips - Jones 40

A tidy pair of premium 10mm Dyneema spinnaker sheets for you today. These guys are constructed from the higher modulus SK75 Dyneema fibre for a bit of extra grunt, and are finished off with a short-eye covered eye splice direct to the customer's existing Gibb Clips. The tips have been finished off with my urethane RopeCoat finish to help distinguish the port and starboard sheets up on the bow. RopeCoat can be applied to Chafe Sleeve tips and single braid line to provide some extra UV and chafe protection, to stabilise the fibres to prevent them furring up with age, and to add some colour where there typically isn't any to help out the Bowman . It comes in all the major colours, and I am really loving the product. Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any RopeCoat related queries!

2 x 16mm Spliced Dyneema Mooring / Anchoring Bridles - Chincogan 40 Catamaran

Posted on September 23, 2015

2 x 16mm Dyneema Cyclone Anchoring / Mooring Bridles w/ Covered Eye Splices & Ronstan Thimbles - Chincogan 40 Catamaran

Here we have a pair of BIG mooring bridles. These guys were spliced up for a Chicogan 40 catamaran, which is being extensively cruised at the northern parts of Australia between WA and QLD. The brief was for the bridles to effectively be cyclone-proof, should the owners get stuck in nasty conditions often seen in that part of the world. The answer - two 16mm Dyneema bridles: one end finished with a long loop designed to work with the horn cleats of the forward transverse beam of the boat, and the other end designed to shackle to the anchor or mooring and fitted with a 316 stainless steel thimble to prevent chafe. Each of these guys have a break strength of nearly 7 tonnes independently, so when used as a bridle gives the owner a huge amount of confidence in the setup.

10mm x 43m Yellow/Black Technora/Polyester Blend Spliced Dyneema Main Halyard w/ Dyneema Chafe Sleeve Tip & Sydney Rigging Halyard Shackle - Jones 40

Some high-performance racing gear on show today - this main halyard was custom built for one of my oldest customers, the owner of the Jones 40 "Arch Rival" racing out of Drummoyne Sailing Club here in Sydney. Over the past couple of seasons I have replaced nearly every sheet and halyard on the boat. The image below is the Main Halyard - a custom 10mm x 43m SK75 line spun up by the good folks at International Rope Braid, in a 50/50 Technora/Polyester Blend cover to provide chafe protection over the entire length of the line, with 5 metres worth of premium Dyneema Chafe Sleeve tip to prevent chafe at the masthead sheave over the full range of reef points. The line has also been bulked internally prior to over-braiding, over the entire range of locations the line sits in the clutch from full hoist down to 3rd reef to minimise slippage. A Sydney Rigging high-load halyard shackle has been spliced in for compact and reliable sail attachment. This is an awesome bit of no-compromise kit that will provide great performance and longevity for one of the most important lines on any yacht.

9mm Dynice Dux Synthetic Inner Forestay w/ Dog Bone Loop

9mm Hampidjan Dynice Dux Synthetic Inner Forestay Assembly w/ Dog Bone Loop - Adams 42, In Situ    9mm Hampidjan Dynice Dux Synthetic Inner Forestay Assembly w/ Dog Bone Loop - Adams 42, In Situ

Here's an interesting little project... This is a removable inner forestay for an Adams 42 cutter-rigged cruiser, and contains plenty of cool and techy stuff. The main construction is 9mm Dynice Dux - Dux is perfect for standing rigging type applications due to it's low stretch and high strength qualities. At the mast end I have spliced in a stainless thimble for abrasion resistance, and connects into the existing mast tang via a Ronstan load-rated stainless steel key-pin shackle. The lower end is where things start getting interesting. I have spliced in a 16mm Ronstan low friction ring at the lower end of the stay to permit lashing with multiple runs of 4mm Dynice 75 lash line.

The deck fitting on the boat for the stay to connect into is a Highfield Lever - not often seen on modern yachts, but were all the rage up until a couple of decades ago. This is a lever device that permits tension to be applied and released quickly and easily, perfect for inner forestays. The owner likes his lever, so I needed to design my replacement synthetic inner forestay around the contraption. My solution is a light and simple covered Dux dog bone loop, with a 22mm Ronstan low friction ring stitched in to accommodate lashing to the Dux forestay. This can be easily connected and disconnected as required, and tension can be fine tuned via the lashing.

The weight of the new forestay worked out to be approximately one sixth of the existing wire arrangement, and my final assembly will be significantly stronger as well. A modern twist on a traditional setup!

14mm x 55m Orange Polyester Double Braid Mainsheet w/ Covered Eye Splice  - Lagoon 440 Catamaran

Big cruising gear from Wet Tech Rigging - this 14mm x 55m Polyester Double Braid mainsheet now lives on board a Lagoon 44 catamaran. This owner was more price conscious than performance conscious so Polyester-cored line was chosen to keep costs down, and we went up to 14mm for a bit of extra safety factor and to improve trimmer comfort. The custom orange cover color was chose to improve visibility at night. A covered eye splice was constructed into the end to attach directly into the upper purchase block to ensure longevity and chafe protection. An economical solution for this cruising-oriented owner.

12mm x 40m Premium Dyneema Main Halyard: Peterson 46

Posted on August 26, 2015

12mm x 40m Blue Spliced Dyneema Main Halyard w/ Dynice Dux Dog Bone Loop & Dyneema Chafe Sleeve Tip - Peterson 46

Here we have a 12mm x 40m Dyneema main halyard for a Peterson 44. This halyard has all the mod cons - Dyneema chafe sleeve tip for improved abrasion resistance all the way from full hoist down to the deepest reef, as well as the latest in "soft" Dyneema hardware to connect the halyard to the sail; a 5mm Dux covered dog bone loop.

This loop has a break strength of around 8 tonnes, and a safe working load of 4 tonnes. Weight is around 50 grams all told, including a stainless steel dog bone. Have a hunt around for an equivalent strength stainless fitting - not only will the weight far exceed 50 grams, but the price will be right up there..

This was a really neat package - light, strong, reliable and the latest in Dyneema Hardware.. What's not to love!

12mm x 40m Grey Spliced Dyneema Main Halyard w/ Dyneema Chafe Sleeve Tip - C&C 115

A nice premium 10mm Dyneema SK75 main halyard on show today for a well-campaigned C&C 115 racing out of the CYCA. The line measures in at 40m overall, with an extra-long 5m of Dyneema chafe sleeve to provide chafe protection right the way through from full hoist down to the deepest 3rd reef. The line is finished with a long-eye covered eye splice to permit slip-knotting onto the customer's existing hardware.

I really like the grey cover colour, really gives the line a simple and sophisticated look. Grey also looks great blended with any of the other colour to tone down the brightness a bit. Remember - any halyard from Wet Tech Rigging can be made to the colour scheme of your choice, including solid colours, solid colours with your choice of fleck colour, or blended combinations of any two colours which look really cool - e.g. Black/Blue Blend, Red/White Blend, Green/Grey Blend etc. I have a great relationship with local QLD rope manufacturer International Rope Braid who custom make the line I purchase to order.

The full list of colour options includes:
Red, Green, Blue, Yellow, White, Black, Orange, Purple, Pink, Grey, Navy, Lime and Off-White
Let your imagination run wild and come up with a cool colour combo when you place your next order!

Wet Tech Rigging Does Wire Too: Sabot Forestays

Posted on July 23, 2015

2.5mm Hamma Strand Dyform Adjustable Forestay w/ 2mm Dyneema SK75 Lash Line - Sabot Dinghy

Wet Tech can supply wire rigging too! Shown here are a couple of nice low profile roll-swaged Sabot forestays. The upper end is finished off with a slimline Tee-ball fitting, with the lower end finished with a neat roll-swaged eye which can either be shackled direct to the bow, or lashed to control rake in varying conditions.

This customer preferred the flexibility of an adjustable lashing, so I spliced on some 2mm SK75 single braid to the roll-swaged eye to permit adjustment. Two complete lashing legs of this line will match the strength of the 2.5mm HammaStrand Dyform wire, but provision for around 6 legs has been provided for a bit of extra safety factor and provision for adjustment.

7mm Dux Steering Cables for a Sydney 38

7mm Spliced Hampidjan Dynice Dux Steering Cables - Sydney 38 One Design, In Situ 7mm Spliced Hampidjan Dynice Dux Steering Cables - Sydney 38 One Design, In Situ

Today's entry is an international customer, all the way from sunny New Caledonia. In rough weather, the existing single-braid Vectran steering cable broke due to fatigue causing a wild spin out whilst sailing downwind. We have constructed a pair of new cables for a Sydney 38 from 7mm Dynex Dux, which is beautiful pre-stretched single braid Dyneema SK75 line manufactured by Hampidjan - perfect for this application. Low stretch, lightweight and extremely strong - with a minimum 6 tonne spliced break strength.

The supplied assembly consisted of a soft eye in one end which attached directly into a shackle at the base of the steering chain, which in turn runs over a cog on the wheel that transmits the steering torque from above deck down into the rudder.

The second end finish consisted of a lightweight, high strength Ronstan low friction ring which permitted lashing to a welded ring on the steering quadrant to ensure the system is both adjustable and snug to prevent slippage. 4mm Dynex 75 was spliced direct to the low friction ring for a strong, neat and reliable lash line.

The two steering cables weighed in at around 400 grams complete, which made international postage extremely affordable - not much more than domestic delivery for lightweight items like this, and no GST payable on international sales makes this a great option for potential overseas customers.

The smaller images above show the original Vectran cables that broke under load, as well as a few snaps of the new cables in place.

Viva la Nouvelle Calédonie!

More Dyneema Soft Shackles!

Posted on July 16, 2015

4mm & 5mm Hampidjan Dynice 75 Soft Shackles for Mainsail Slider Attachment

The range of applications for Dyneema Soft Shackles never ceases to amaze me. Another perfect application is the attachment of the mainsail sliders to the sail. This is traditionally carried out by the sail maker, by stitching multiple wraps of polyester webbing between the slider and the sail - but ultimately chafes, falls victim to UV damage or stretches which causes sail shape issues.

This customer came to me with a solution to this problem, by double-wrapping Dyneema Soft Shackles between the sliders and the pressed sail eyes. The soft shackles are removable and easily replaceable with no tools, are low stretch, chafe resistant and extremely strong. The main sliders are held on with 7 x 4mm Dynex Soft Shackles (doubled up at each slider), with the two highly loaded head soft shackles constructed in 5mm Dynex for a bit of extra safety factor. The boat is a 60ft Trimaran, so the loads on the sliders are quite high.

All nine soft shackles weigh in at less than 100 grams complete, and the entire order fitted into an a "large letter" for delivery costs of only $1.40!

Replacement Hardware Compatible Dyneema Loops

Posted on June 25, 2015

Replacement Dyneema SK75 Endless Soft Loops for Harken, Lewmar, Ronstan Hardware

One job I am constantly doing for my own gear is to change out loops on Ronstan/Harken/etc blocks to ensure no failures at a regatta or during the season. The replacement loops sold by hardware manufacturers are generally made quite cheaply - by doing a rough un-tapered splice and stitching in place on a sewing machine - which probably retains around half to three-quarters of the line strength.

Our replacement loops are done with double crossovers, neat tapers, and just a couple of tack stitches to hold the main crossover in place, which leads to a neater, stronger and more reliable Dyneema loop - with break strengths matching or (even exceeding) that of the published line strength. I can make loops to any line diameter and overall length, matching loop SWL's to block SWL's to ensure compatibility.

The loops & blocks pictured are off my MG14 mainsheet and spinnaker sheet , and are constructed from 2mm Dyneema SK75, which is perfect for skiff blocks having a break strength of around 350kg. Wet Tech Rigging's Dyneema loops are light, cost effective, reliable and strong, and can be made up to your exact requirements. If you need to replace out some Dyneema loops prior to the big regattas over the next couple of months feel free to give me a shout!

2015 MG14 National Titles Sponsorship

Posted on June 18, 2015

2 x 6mm x 9m MG14 Continuous Tapered Dyneema Jib Sheets
2 x 8mm x 9m MG14 Dyneema Mainsheet w/ Spliced Chafe Protection

Wet Tech Rigging once again sponsored the MG14 Sailing Association National Titles this year, providing a two sets of tapered 6mm Dyneema jib sheets, two sets of 8mm Dyneema main sheets with chafe protection at the boom pulleys, and a number of rigging vouchers as prizes for the regatta.

The regatta was run and won up at Gosford Sailing Club in the second week of January in generally moderate conditions, with a few stronger breezes towards the end of the series. The regatta taken out on Scratch by class stalwart Rohan on Carbon Neutral with an impressive score card of 8 firsts out of 9 starts, veteran Rochey on Chill'n in second, general nuisances Neil & Josh Tasker in third and myself and Soph on Aqua Pest in fourth.

Congratulations to all prize winners, and looking forward to doing it all again next year!

2 x 12mm x 20m Spliced Genoa Sheets

2 x 12mm x 20m Red/White Blend Spliced Dyneema Genoa Sheets w/ Dyneema Chafe Sleeve Tips - Farr 44 IMS

Christmas shopping for my old man each year couldn't be simpler. No battling the crowds for me, all I need is some fit-for-purpose line and my splicing fids and I'm away. This year the mighty Farr 44 "Sea Hawk" received some very sexy spliced 12mm Genoa Sheets. Constructed from International Rope Braid's finest "Falcon Braid" Dyneema-cored line and finished off with spliced Dyneema Chafe Sleeve tips, these sheets are light, strong and will perform for a long time. These sheets are designed connect in with our existing Covered 7mm Dux Soft Shackles - which might I add are now 4 seasons old (my original prototype design) and still going strong near 120 races later!

2 x 10mm x 32m Dyneema SK75 Spinnaker Sheets

10mm x 32m Orange Spliced Dyneema Spinnaker Sheet w/ Tapered & Spliced Hampidjan Dynice 75 Tip - Beneteau First 47.710mm x 32m Lime Green Spliced Dyneema Spinnaker Sheet w/ Tapered & Spliced Hampidjan Dynice 75 Tip - Beneteau First 47.7

This pair of 10mm Dyneema spinnaker sheets were spliced up in the lead up to the 2014 Sydney to Hobart Race for regular campaigner "Chancellor", a Beneteau First 47.7 sailed out of the CYCA. The project brief for these ones revolved around night time visibility - with many of the modern racing braids having a darker look, this owner was after visibility without the lines being white - as it tends to get dirty quite quickly. The answers: first up this flouro orange number from International Rope Braid ticked all the boxes, and has been stripped & tapered to save weight at the sail end. A 6mm Dynice tip completes the picture for strength and longevity, even when exposed as it is here. The long Brummel lock splice allows the owner to slip-knot onto their existing hardware. So stoked with his new flouro orange kite sheet, the Owner went on to purchase a matching lime green sheet just days prior to the Hobart race.

10mm x 23m Premium Vectran Genoa Halyard: 27ft Trimaran

Posted on June 05, 2015

10mm x 23m Red/Green Blend Spliced Vectran Genoa Halyard w/ Dyneema Chafe Sleeve Tip & Wichard Speedlink Hardware - 27ft Trimaran

A very Christmassy looking 23m Genoa halyard on show today for a 27ft trimaran racing out of Port Stephens Yacht Club. Constructed in super low stretch 10mm "Vulcan Braid" Vectran from International Rope Braid, with a custom red/green blended polyester cover this line has a break strength of around the 3,250kg mark. A premium covered eye splice with 2m of Dyneema chafe sleeve at the tip gives improved abrasion resistance and reduces diameter at the base of the splice, and attaches direct to a light and compact Wichard 87mm SpeedLink Trigger Snap Shackle which is load matched to the strength of the line.

Wichard Pacific continue to supply me really nice gear, and the full range can be ordered through Wet Tech Rigging at good prices. Wichard are also Australian distributors for Profurl, Facnor, TyeTec and Powerlite. Contact us today for all your hardware & furling needs!

12mm x 3.5m 4WD Recovery Bridle

Posted on June 02, 2015

12mm x 3.5m Spliced Hampidjan Dynice 4WD 4x4 Recovery Bridle w/ Polyester Chafe Protection

A 12mm x 3.5m 4WD Recovery Bridle on display today. Constructed from Hampidjan's finest Dynice 75, this bridle has a spliced break strength of no less then 13 tonnes and a published safe working load of 6.5 tonnes - more than enough to haul and 4WD out of a sticky situation. This is a base model recovery bridle with soft eyes and black polyester chafe sleeve, but can be optioned up with Galvanised or Stainless Steel thimbles, as well as Dyneema or Technora Chafe Sleeve over the centre portion for improved abrasion resistance. I can also splice a bride up to suit any requirements, at any work load, for any purpose - I like a challenge! You can buy my standard 10mm & 12mm models online at the Wet Tech Rigging 4WD Recovery Gear Page.

2 x 25m x 10mm Polyester Double Braid Spinnaker Sheets

Posted on June 01, 2015

2 x 10mm x 25m Blue Polyester Double Braid Spinnaker Sheets w/ Tapered & Spliced Hampidjan Dynice 75 Tip - Beneteau 34

This pair of spinnaker sheets for a Beneteau 34 cruiser racer had some fairly specific criteria for me to meet. First and foremost was cost, with Dyneema-cored line out of the question due to price constraints. Secondly is that the customer wanted it to "look techy", which has been achieved by presenting the sheets in stripped/tapered racing style - with the exposed tips spliced in 6mm Dynice. Lastly, the line needed to be able to slip-knot onto the customer's existing "small bale" hardware - which is achievable given the single-braid spliced eyes are very compact. A conventional covered eye splice would not have achieved this goal. The 6mm Dynice is of course significantly stronger than the 10mm Polyester line, but any less and the cover/core crossover splice starts looking a bit dodgy, so 6mm ticks all the boxes! Cost effective, integrates seamlessly with existing hardware and looks fast - this customer was very happy with the outcome!

Constructed from 8mm Dyneema (more for handling than strength), this stripped & tapered halyard is light, strong and functional. The line has been tipped with 4m of exposed 5mm Hampidjan Dynice 75 for improved UV resistance and abrasion properties, and a long-eye splice has been provided to slip-knot onto a shiny new Ronstan RF6120 halyard shackle.

Soft Shackles: Endless Possibilities

Posted on May 18, 2015

6mm Dynice Dyneema Soft Shackle for Mainsail Outhaul Clew Strop on 40ft Yacht 6mm Dynice Dyneema Soft Shackle for Mainsail Outhaul Clew Strop on 40ft Yacht   

Dyneema Soft shackles really are becoming the new norm for lightweight and cost effective attachment solutions - I would have to say they are my single highest selling item here at Wet Tech Rigging, and it's not hard to see why given the array of uses these guys have around the boat as well as outside the marine industry.

Here is one example of a use for a large diameter soft shackle. This one is constructed from 6mm Dynex (4,000 kg break strength) and has a large 200mm diameter, which sets up perfectly for this customer's clew strop. Very simple to attach and detach, great under load, lightweight and safe as houses, you can see above an image of the soft shackle in action.

Think outside the box - any time a simple and reliable attachment method is required, a Dyneema Soft Shackle could fill that role. My range goes from 2mm, which has a SWL of 145kg (perfect for fishing, low load control lines on dinghies etc) all the way up to 12mm, which has a SWL of over 6,700kg and a break strength of nearly 17,000kg. Custom sizes, lengths and strengths are always available on request so if you can dream up an application let me know and I can make it happen!

2 x 10mm x 25m Dyneema SK75 Spinnaker Braces

Posted on May 15, 2015

10mm x 25m Yellow Spliced Dyneema SK75 Spinnaker Brace w/ Dyneema Chafe Sleeve Tip - C&C 115

A nice pair of Premium spinnaker braces on show today for a 36 footer racing out of the CYCA. These guys are 10mm Dyneema SK75 core, with 2m of Dyneema Chafe sleeving to prevent chafe at the beak and around the hardware. With a big break strength of 4,600kg, these lines will be strong, reliable and last the customer many years. Long eye-splices to slip-knot onto the owner's existing hardware completes the picture for a cost-effective solution. The smaller diameter at the spliced end also allowed the owner to use the same brace donuts that suited the old stripped & tapered braces - the Dyneema sleeving only adds around 1.5mm of additional diameter compared to a stripped single braid splice, so behaves in a very similar fashion to the tapered line with improved abrasion and UV resistance.

  • Rope Manufacturer: International Rope Braid
  • Rope Make: 10mm "Falcon Braid" Dyneema SK75
  • End Finish: Long-eye Premium Covered Eye Splice

7mm Hampidjan Dynice Dux Pre-stretched Dyneema SK75 for Grainger 30 Catamaran Standing Rigging Package

Today's post is maybe a little less exciting than usual - but whilst this may look bland, this customer has been busily working away at splicing up his own standing rigging for a Grainger Raider 30 racing catamaran over the past few months. Wet Tech Rigging has supplied in the order of 120 metres of 5mm, 7mm and 9mm Dynice Dux for various tasks around the boat including shrouds, runners, bobstays, strops, lashings and so forth. We are happy to supply line by it's self to those with the talents to turn it into something great, and we are stocking a wide variety of rope and cordage - which can be found for sale by the metre at the Wet Tech Rigging Rope & Cordage Page.

J24 Spinnaker Sheets w/ Covered Soft Shackles

Posted on May 12, 2015

8mm x 17m Red & Green Spliced Dyneema Spinnaker Sheets w/ Tapered & Spliced Hampidjan Dynice 75 Tip & Covered Dynice Soft Shackles - J24 One Design

A nice set of stripped & tapered J24 spinnaker sheets on show today. Constructed from 8mm Dyneema-cored line from International Rope Braid, the exposed tips have been constructed in 5mm Dynice for improved abrasion resistance and longevity. This Client was keen on trying out the latest generation of soft attachment methods, in favour of traditional stainless steel hardware. At around a quarter of the weight of an equivalent strength stainless steel fitting and half the price, this technology is gaining more and more momentum as boat owners are seeing the advantages of this kind of "soft" Dyneema hardware. Constructed from a 4mm Dynice core and completely encased in 52-carrier Dyneema Chafe Sleeve, these soft shackles will provide this Customer many years of strong, reliable service.

  • A 6mm x 300mm Strop was also provided which could attach asymmetric spinnaker tacks, act as a spacer strop on asymmetric spinnaker sheets, work as an outhaul strop, wrap around the boom for a boom brake, bridle off anchor lines and so forth.

Chincogan 40 Main, Genoa & Spinnaker Halyards

Some nice gear for a Chincogan 40 performance cruising catamaran over in WA. This customer required three new halyards, with the project brief putting an emphasis on longevity and minimising cost. The solution was a 10mm x 55m Dyneema SK75 2:1 main halyard with a short-eye covered eye splice to connect into the masthead clevis. The genoa halyard is colour matched to the main halyard (customer preference), but has been constructed in lower modulus 10mm Dyneema SK62 to keep costs to a minimum. One again, the end finish is a short-eye covered eye splice to connect into existing Dee Shackle hardware. Finally, the spinnaker halyard has been constructed from 12mm Polyester double braid in a techy looking black/grey mottle colour scheme, with a stopper ball stitched in half a metre from the eye to suit the customer's short luff length cruising spinnaker. Once again, a covered eye splice finish (a long-eye this time) to suit existing hardware and ensure longevity.

4mm Dyneema MG14 Spinnaker Halyard

Posted on April 02, 2015

4mm x 18m Black Spliced Dyneema Spinnaker Halyard w/ Tapered & Spliced Hampidjan Dynice 75 / Dyneema Chafe Sleeve Tip - MG14 Skiff

This nice bit of MG14 kit was a very techy 4mm Dyneema spinnaker halyard. Constructed from IRB's "Falcon Braid" Dyneema SK75, this line has been stripped, tapered and tipped with 3mm Dynice 75 for the end 6-or-so metres to reduce weight and windage, and to allow the line to run smoothly through the mast sheave. The taper cross-over point is positioned to ensure the cover is present in the halyard cleat at full hoist. To prevent abrasion damage, the end 300mm has been encased in 52-carrier Dyneema Chafe Sleeve (including the eye of the splice) which adds almost zero weight, minimal diameter increase but a huge amount of protection to ensure a long-lasting halyard. The spliced eye chokes onto a 3mm Dynice soft shackle for a lightweight and reliable attachment method which is easily and cheaply replaceable if required. The dead-end of the line features a luggage tag splice with 3mm Dynice soft shackle to attach the line to the pull point of the spinnaker for the single line launch/retrieval system.
