I bought a bunch of line yesterday, and had it in my head
the 5/16 called for on my halyards could also be used for downhauls, but I see know that the downhaul could be 1/8 without a problem. However, is there anything bad performance or safety
wise about using a heavier than called for line?
Obviously trying to run the downhaul through every hank isnt going to work with such a heavy line, but I've read online that isnt necessary anyway, all you need is the last slug and the head
of the sail running down to a block.
