INVITATION TO ALL
Join us at 10:30 on Sunday the 3rd of September on the Centreboard Lawn when Phil from DeckHardware will talk about sailing products, how to choose them, how to use them and how to maintain them.
- Do you know what to use and where on your boat?
- Do you know how to look after your rope and fittings?
- When you coil your rope does it end up in knots? There is a trick to help avoid this!
- Did you know there are types of Dyneema® fibre which then becomes different types of Dyneema® Rope?
One of the interesting things about hardware design over the last few years has been the development in rope technology. Previously block ranges faced an unchanging demand and lightness was the only desirable characteristic, however this is no longer the case.
Phil will be discussing the different loads on your blocks, depending on the application you are using them for and where they are placed in the system. As well as some of the new products available like Dog Bones.
Phil will discuss the different types of rope to help you choose which type to use. We know this can be a tricky process and often it comes down to the individual sailor and what they like.
