Re: Endless rope loops

You can make them fairly easily. The diameter on mine were 4.5 inches and I used 1/8”, 3/16” and 1/4” dyeneema to make them.  On Aventura the 1/8 dyneema matches very closely to the original ones. 
Directions are here.

Thanks, Doug Smith

Hi David,
What mm are you finding that will cover most replacements or are you matching mm to load very specifically. 

All the best,

Are you referring to “soft shackles”?


If so, you can buy these at a chandlery, or go to a rigger / sail-maker, and get them made up to spec.  We are in the process of replacing all met-to-metal shackle with soft shackles.

Subject: [AmelYachtOwners] Endless rope loops


Hi All,


Many of the “endless rope loops” – I don’t know what the technical term is – that secure e.g. the mizzen sheet block to the boom, amongst a number of other things, look to be in need of replacement. I was wondering if anyone can recommend a suitable alternative to these as I know that to make them in situ as would be required requires some expertise which I do not have and cannot see gaining anytime soon.
