Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Boots for spreaders
Craig, First off, I am no Gentleman , ask my wife. Secondly , I spoke to my sail maker and will be sending it off for a patch, but I still want to put a boot on to lessen the chafe in the future. I just now think I found one on Amazon I will order, not cheap $100/pair.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text

Gentlemen don't sail upwind. :-)
An option I've used is chafe patches on the genoa.

I have considerable chafe on my genoa that is only a few years old and maybe about 5000 miles on it. Its obviously rubbing on the spreader. Has anyone bought boots for the spreaders on a SM that fit well. I have the wheels , but they don't provide enough protection.
