Webbing

Hello all, I have a simple question I think.
I just took my sails off the boat for winter. On the head of the sail there was a slider that was attached to the mast. It used 3/4" webbing that I had to cut off.
My question is what kind of webbing to use and what kind of whipping line to replace it with.
I found out how to attach to the slider but not what type to use.
Any info would help.
Thank you in advance.

You should be able to find the polyester webbing at Sailrite. Not a big job.



There was not a mast gate to remove the sliders? It is not normal to cut stuff off to remove a sail. Ordinarily, all of the slugs remain attached to the sail. Please look again.

Re: Webbing

I’ve bought a lot of webbing and webbing hardware from these folks. Always had good service.
