Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Outhaul rope problem

Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>


The original Amel is Kevlar which is impossible to find. I bought a 10mm Kevlar from Amel Hyeres. About 110 euro. Amel La Rochelle supplies 12mm, but not Kevlar...something else. I think Hyeres has some old inventory.

BTW, you cannot cut the Kevlar core with a "hot rope cutter." You need a sharp knife.

Hi Paul;

We have had this issue sometimes after we remove and re-install our sails. For us, it has mainly been the line tension on the outhaul. Typically a minor adjustment in the outhaul ( slight tightening) has resolved the issue.
