    Design Project - Seeking Input

    Not too hard to make yourself. Just winds up heavier. Make sure you use good bearings, and keep things square. https://www.marineelement.com/product-page/unreel-revolution-kit HW

    charlie enright

    With the transition to a smaller team vs the '65s, have you had to change you leadership style or learn new techniques for managing a small team in this situation? HW

    Best grippy shoes

    Fully converted to Adidas. Grippy and light. Beware there is 0% support so if that's something you need then it's not the shoe for you. HW

    cover for dyneema

    Unfortunately, all manufacturers are different, and within a manufacturer the ratios will differ between products. Which is why many shops will get one manufacturer and stick with them. Difficult to do repeatable precise splicing with many different manufacturers. 2/3-3/4 is a good ballpark. For instance Marlow MGP Tech 50/Race 100 in 12mm has a 9mm core. With the cover, oversize is easier to splice, but I meant that slightly undersize is easier to milk tight. HW

    cover for dyneema

    +1 the above, also remember it is easier to get cover to match slightly larger core than to go smaller. HW

    Forespar Flowtech Valve trouble

    Don't lube! They rely on the friction between the handle's compressed o-rings and the inside of the sea-cock. The best way to get them all the way up is twist (gently) and pull (harder than you'd like) as you reach the top of the stroke. I mark all of the handle shafts with paint marker to denote max open.

    Coat hanger in a pinch. But I do 99% of my work now with a bent piece of stainless TIG rod. HW

    Custom. You'll save time in the long run. Local canvassers should be looking for work now anyways. HW
