So for the wire to rope haylard main and jib chrysler used 3/8. In an effort to sail this year the 3/8lines need replaced. Does anyone know the working load on those ropes? As a temp I was looking at home depot and they have poly 3/8 marine line not dock line and the working load limit is 350lbs will this support the main and jib haylards? Lake sailing only 15 knot max wind speed. If that matters. Any help is appreciated.
Is "Poly" polypropylene or polyester? I'm speaking of polypropylene. https://www.westmarine.com/WestAdvisor/ ... ng-Rigging
No polyester sorry forgot polypropelyne is also used for rope. The issue I'm running into is the safe operating weight. I don't see how a haylard would need more than 350lbs of work limit but...newengland is supposedly 1300lbs. That's the issue I run into. Am I still safe operating on 350 vs sta set
