      Ed, I'm considering your recommendation on replacing the lines on my newly acquired used 14.2 and would like to verify your selection of the 8m (5/16) New Swift for the main sheet. Did you really mean 5/16 or should it be 3/8? Note that APS does not seem to list the New Swift 5/16. Also, why New Swift vs Swiftcord for this application?
      Thanks,
      Radu

        Radu, I do have 8 mm Newswift. APS lists the 8 mm size in their Spring 2012 catalog; call them. I like the Newswift -- soft on the hand and doesn't absorb water. Also resistant to sunlight, cleats well and runs through blocks easily. However, I had Swiftcord for my old vang and jib sheets -- this is also an excellent line, but is just a bit softer.

      Ahoy Ed! we are already thinking of staarting our sailing season, looking for the weather window and getting the boats ready . Not including your boat and those with bigger boats, we have four 14 footers in our informal group - 2 C14's , an Omega 14 and a Lido 14 so it could be a lot of fun to get them all on the water at some time . I will keep you informed . Hope to see you soon!
