Secondary Line Options – Uncovered Secondary Line

8:1 Downhaul System Option - Uncovered D12
8:1 Downhaul System Option - Uncovered D12
Gottifredi Maffioli Compact Braid 4mm SK78 D12 uncovered secondary line fitted instead of the standard control line. This is an 'extreme' uncovered control line that some top sailors prefer to use for the downhaul and outhaul. Sealed ends are standard (the free end is epoxy/heatshrink sleeving glued in place giving a very clean finish to the end that both prevents fraying). NOTES - this is a system option when ordering a downhaul system and when ordered replaces the standard secondary line. This option is only available for the Harken 29mm and Allen 30mm systems

System Option – Primary Termination

As an alternative to the primary line being fixed using the lower strop, a caribiner can be used, attached to the top of the kicker assembly. This makes rigging/de-rigging easier, particularly if you are using a braided chain handle. If you add this system option the primary line of the downhaul that you order will be shortened.

If ordered in conjunction with an 8:1 downhaul the downhaul primary will be shortened accordingly. Note that this option does not include the caribiner.
