For those of you with Zspars masts and roller furling mains:

See below photo for the chafing problem we are having. It seems that the mainsail outhaul line chafes inside the boom. Do you have the same problem or does it look like your outhaul is mounted different?

I would appreciate your thoughts.

"All great advice! Did you check the charger's "battery type" selector switch position (flood,gel,agm)? Our Dekka agm's ( 396ah house and 98ah engine) gave us over 7 1/2 years of usage before replacement. The batteries were still…"

"Yep, I too have snapped a couple of the clam shell drain covers off. I have a couple of spares, but may or may not replace this time. The slack didn't seem to be the ultimate cause. Seems that wind/tide shifts and wake surge would cause the…"

"Sam, we are the essentially the same.  Using the same mantus bridle as you.  Quick question to you and any others using a bridle.  We had the bridle rubbing the sides of the bow in a recent storm and it ended up snapping off the…"

"On Longhawk we use a Rocna 20KG. I changed out the chain gypsy when new to one that handles 5/16 high Test chain. Then I went with 175 ft of 5/16 HT chain tailed with 200 ft of three strand.(overkill, but I had the rode as supplied new). For a short…"
