Downhaul Primary Lines

All our primary lines are made from SK78 Dyneema, in Grey (FSE Robline Ocean 3000XG), and Red, Yellow, Blue and Black (Gottifredi Maffioli Compact Braid), with a choice of types suitable for both traditional and newer ‘soft attach’ blocks. Note that we now offer different length of primary line – one for the Standard MkI/Radial/4.7 rig and one for the Standard MkII due to the fact that the tack cringle on the MkII sail is higher than the other rigs. We also offer different thickness lines 3mm to 5mm for the single ended lines – thicker lines help prevent them getting caught in the gooseneck.

Primary lines with loops at each end are for use with ‘hard attach’ blocks like the Harken 16mm ‘air’ blocks.  Single ended primary lines are for ‘soft attach’ blocks such as Harken’s Carbo Blocks – one end has the usual loop for attaching to a hard fixing (for example the top of the kicker fitting) – the other end is free so you can tie it onto a ‘soft attach’ block. Free ends are epoxy sealed so they won’t start to fray.
