Wet Tech Rigging
Introducing Wet Tech Rigging's range of Halyards, Sheets & Splicing Services
Brand new 8mm halyard/sheet constructed from top quality Australian Made
International Rope Braid "Falcon Braid" line - custom made to order.
Professionally spliced using techniques appropriate for Dyneema-cored ropes.
As a guide, a halyard should be approximately 2.5 times longer than the
distance between the deck and the exit point on the mast.
Dyneema is recommended as a mainsail / headsail / staysail / spinnaker halyard
on cruising & racing yachts, or as a topping lift on larger yachts.
This would suit a spinnaker sheet for yachts up to 10 metres. As a guide, a
spinnaker sheet should be approximately two times the length of the boat.
8mm Dyneema is also perfect for jib sheets on yachts up to 7 metres. As a
guide, a jib sheet should be approximately 1.5 times the length of the boat.
