Re: [Amel] MAin outhaul line

Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>

Yes, I have, and used the wrong kind of line before switching to low-stretch line.

Also, it needs to be very tight...even the low stretch will stretch, so take this into consideration when rigging. I forgot exactly how I did it, but I used the outhaul motor to tighten the line while installing it. When you are installing, either use the outhaul to tighten or rig some blocks/line and use one of the mast winches to tighten.

Hope this helps,

We've had some issues with the outhaul line on the main stretches and sometimes gets jammed in the boom motor pulley and it won't wind out or in.

I've shortened it, re tied it..but it still happens.

I'm thinking of changing the line to low stretch Spectra to try to solve this issue.

anyone else have this experience ?  solutions ??
