lagoon 500 halyard replacement

Yesterday after a tack the genoa came down, the halyard chafe at the exit of the mast
do anybody knows what brand is the original rope used by lagoon for this halyard?
which do you recommend?
I replaced the main halyard last year with a samson dyneema core and since I have had problems with the spinlock to hold it, and now the cover chafed and parted right at the spin lock.

Re: lagoon 500 halyard replacement

I am confused, did the line break at the mast exit or at the halyard lock?

If it was chaff at the mast exit just splice another eye on the sail end and you are fine.

If the cover parted at the halyard lock then you can either replace it, or throw in a taper before and after the lock to keep the cover from moving. Basically what causes this is that the cover and core never properly integrated and slipped past each other.

Re: lagoon 500 halyard replacement

the genoa halyard broke at the top of the mast, not the first time, so no more rope to shorten it, it's time for a new one.

The problem with the nearly new main halyard is at the lock where it always slips and where the cover chafed in less then a year , so my question is what brand of rope is best for replacement?

Re: lagoon 500 halyard replacement

Endurabraid is by far the best covered Dyneema in my opinion. But you may want to double check the size of your clutches against line size.

For a large cat I would also look into halyard locks. But at a minimum I would start looking for what on the mast is causing so much wear. If you are chaffing they dyneema in a year anything else is going to be a matter of months.
