or is this a halyard? Hmmm...
I feel that it is time to replace the line on my daggerboard. Has anyone used one of the more modern types of rope (Dyneema?) for this? It seems that this should be one of the strongest lines on the boat, because, if it parts, you could be in some serious trouble. I had a block fail on mine a couple of years ago during a receeding tide in the Walton Backwaters..good thing I had a bit of water under me and a spare block!
