"When we purchased our B40, our rigger discussed the fact that to get fully to the top of the mast, it was best to use the topping lift.  I replaced it with one size larger line.  Have only used it a time or two to get to the very top, most…"

Rigging ropes for Oceanis 40

Hello,I have already replaced some sheets of my sailboat (2010). At this moment I need to replace the rope that supports the boom. It is a relatively thin line with a 8 mm diameter. I would like to know which type of rope I should use in this case. Also, I would appreciate if anyone knows the needed length. I pretend to place the new rope using the old one as a guide.Kind Regards. Luiswww.vela-navega.comSee More

"I think the sump is connected to the floor with a kind of silicone. Take extreme care to avoid parts (the screws for example) to fall in the hole once you remove the sump. I placed a towel between the hull and the deck after having a night mare to…"
