Re: Continious soft shackle

Would you happen to know the various rope diameters for the A54? I recall that the one used for the main sheet is a larger diameter than the others.


I’m away from by boat at present but need to get some.

They are pretty easy to make with some 1/4 “ dyneema. I searched for a while but couldn’t find anyone selling what I was trying to replace. 

With the right fids, it takes about 15-20 minutes to get one of these done. Also very helpful was the Ronstan D splicer for pulling through the ends. 

I used this website to get the lengths and sizing right.

Thanks, Doug Smith
