Hi,

Does anyone know if it is possible to make a continuous system by splicing the ends of Swiftcord together, as it is with Spectra/Dyneema?

Hi Damian, Sorry about the kites you brought to Pornic, but I am not so well off at the moment also because the Croc' has not been sold yet. Well congratulation for your title and for having taught the French teams who were capable not to capsize for more than 5 minutes (which was not the case for m...

Hi Damo,

Prices are not the same as Katie's kites... :roll: But they could fit anyway. If you can bring the three to the Euros maybe we can have a deal then. :wink:

how do you guys splice the trap wires to the mast? do you have to buy new t-bail things or is there an ingenious way of doing this? Spliced off around the upper spreaders and the front of the mast - no need for holes in the mast. I use a separate bit of 3mm dyneema for this with hard eyes spliced i...

I tried that on my spinakers, but haven't sailed yet and so can't tell if it's good or not! :oops: You will find a lot of information on the Web site! Otherwise, the best product that I know is the Team McLube SailKote, that you will find here , but the price is not the same... at all! :? Cheers,

1987, ça date un peu et je ne suis pas spécialiste, mais tu devrais effectivement trouver des sensations de glisse plus intéressantes qu'avec ton 14' actuel s'il date de 1958... Et, à certaines allures, c'est clair que le spi assymétrique devrait te permettre de laisser les Hobie Cat 14 loin derrièr...

Du coup, il va être un peu difficile d'évaluer la valeur de ton bateau, comme tu le demandes dans tes autres posts. Je t...

On sera aussi probablement à Carnac dans 10 jours, ce serait cool si on pouvait sortir à plusieurs 14'. Je vais contacter Yabriliz pour voir si ça peut se faire, tiens-moi au courant si t...
