Hi everyone

Im about to replace the jib halyard on the capricorn, I would like to use dyneema but i am concerned about the stretch as my halyard is not adjustable on water.

are there many peeps using dyneema over wire now?

Don't do it unless you can rig an easy on the water tensioner

Dazz,

the last owner of your boat was a know nothing layabout. Whatever you do change all his systems and rope selections etc.

Thanks Scarecrow, I'm sure TA will be pleased to hear that :P

There are some realy good setups on this boat that I havnt seen anywhere else.

I have made some changes, done a bucket load of maintenace (all standing rigging, diamonds, all shock cord, new sheets..) mostly so the boat is easier to deal with on a week to week basis.

The forestay is being replaced today, the furler is coming out as the jib doesnt furl anyway. The choice between a rope or wire jib halyard determins the type of pulley that will be swaged onto the forestay.

Im sticking with wire.

Hi there,

I would like to replace the jib halyard on my Nacra Infusion mk II. What line are recommending for the halyard? Should I use Dacron or some other material, such as Vectran?

Here's the Nacra's manual how to replace the halyard -> http://goo.gl/ohNDxi .

Thanks in advance.

What a fortune teller you turned out to be Scarecrow. by the time I had finished it was virtually identical in setup to the C2, so when i made the move to a new boat, everything was the just the same but faster/easier to sail.

Juha, any old piece of string will do for a nacra halyard. If you have the stock hook/ring arrangement then there is no load on the halyard at all.

Vectran has a very bad UV resistance. I don't think the line will last longer than 3 years. My preference would be dyneema.
Setting up an adjustable jib halyard is quite easy and definately worth the investment if you are racing.
