Boltrope material choices

Recommended Posts

Hi gang,

GlowBoat is getting a new boltrope on the main.  Ease of raising is so important to me for a good season.  It goes up so easy when fresh.  I currently have the teflon thread stuff with the brown streaks.  It has been a while.  Is there anything more slippery and more durable than the teflon / dacron tape?  She is getting a new mast too.  Nature f'ed us this season and a tornado flipped her.  Rebuild underway.

 

thanks for your advise.

If a roller boom wasn't one of the best inventions in sailing ever, IMHO, I would consider a track and slides, but I can drop and roll the main nicely around the boom in about 20 seconds.  raising from it is equally easy when the boltrope is fresh.   I am talking to the sailmaker today to see if he has any suggestions.  In happier times.
