Standing rigging of the "ropes" again today on the agenda. Due to the rapid technological development and production of extremely rugged high-synthetic fibers, more and more boaters are thinking about replacing its rigging of stainless wires to the synthetic. With it you can reduce the weight of standing rigging by 80% without the risk of reducing its strength. Masts extend our yachts up to 20 meters above the waterline, and keels buried in water up to 2 meters. In terms of stability, this means that each kilogram of weight, added to the masthead, will require 10 kg of ballast in the keel to compensate for the decrease in stability. Viacom shines more light on the discussion. Of course, if the weight falls below the rigging to the deck, then the result is not so obvious, but in any case, with the same ballast, lighter rigging of synthetic ropes and lanyards will ensure greater stability of the yacht. For some, this means that the boat will heel less on a collision course to the wind, others think about the possibility to carry more sail and let the heavy loads in harsh conditions.
Speaking of the rope rigging, we mean the guys and lanyard of synthetic rope, although there may be a combination of stainless steel lanyards. steel and plastic shrouds, and vice versa. Draft yacht and the mast can be processed under rigging. Modern rope lanyard is an advanced copy of the traditional lanyard, deadeye not only from the tree, and from super-durable plastic, and instead of ropes made of natural fibers (hemp, sisal or Manila) uses high-synthetic fibers Dynema, woven into a rope known under the brand Dynex Dux, who is a market leader in this production.
