    Outhaul Clew Block With Hook

    Hey guys would this block with a hook fit on the eye of the sail at the clew? I was just wondering if the hook itself was large enough to bridge the gap between the eye and the edge of the leech. http://shop.pinbax.com/index.asp?selection=detailed&uid=33845&cg=7&mc=66&cct=4&sc=301 Thanks!

    What vang is better

    I have used Harken, Holt and the 3:1 system, (just don't even think about buying that one!) Out of the Harken and Holt, I much preferred the Holt system to the Harken one... Yes the secondary line (ie the one you pull) overlaps, in the 4:1 part of it, but if you are using a good rope, it wont...

    RADIAL OR 4.7??

    Well, I would say sail a radial, they are more widely sailed and you get better competition sailing them... You are only likely to get heavier and not lighter, so it will play to your advantage. Also I sail a full rig and I'm about 68kg, I usually handle fine and am usually at/near the front of...

    Which one, Harken vang or Holt vang?

    I've used both in my past, and I definitely prefer the Holt system... I know the lines cross over at one point, and they aren't as well separated as the lines in the Harken system, but the angle of cleating is better, the cleat swivel is much better and if you are using good line the crossover...

    Best 6mm mainsheet options?

    Hey, I'm looking for a new mainsheet, preferably 6mm. I need it to be quite light, gentle on the hands and hard wearing. It would also be nice if it didn't absorb water. Obviously though I don't want something too expensive, ie over £2/m would be classed too expensive by me Thanks =P
