New plan: After talking to the Hood
, they no longer offer the continuous loop furling
line with a splice in it, but will provide splicing instructions if you buy their 60 furling line for $155.00. Being splice-impaired, I called a rigger and for $30.00 he will splice the new furling line and also quoted $72.00 for 60' of 3/8"Sta Set X furling line, which is a great price
. No need to disconnect the forestay. Thanks for all the advice and I may end up using some of it when I replace the furling centering clamp this weekend.
