Hi All,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
a simple fix for a slipping outhaul rope that I have found works well is to
paint the rope with a coat of contact adhesive. Only the part that runs around
the capstan needs to be painted of course. Since doing this, I have never had
the rope slip.
Just back in the UK for a few days to go and see the Amel 54 after a Black Sea
crusie to Bulgaria & Romania.

I had a similar problem in Greece. I bought a normal rope and it was
extended by on meter ( 3 feet) after a few days of use. I ordered from Amel
the original rope but it also extended slightly 15 cm after use and I was
able to take the it in in order to tight the rope. The rope has to be very
tight any slack will make the system useless.
