Synthetic Winch Line again


Recommended Posts

Sorry to bring this topic up again. But for those who are more in the know than me; would you consider the wear in the line pictured in the link as a throw it in the bin job?

Winch rope 1 - sorry bit out of focus as a phone photo.

Hi All,

That synthetic line looks fine to me!

A bit of fluffing will protect the inner strands of the line without any problems.

If in doubt send me a better quality picture and I will have a closer look.

When we wash sailing ropes in the washing machine, we tie a tea-towl over the hard eye if there is one, i reckon you could do the same with the hook.

Ahh,, someone else that wash the sheets & halyards the same way :D

Yup, sheets, halyards, even the mooring lines if we're feeling posh... Using old-school laundry bags keeps them all seperate when we wash a couple at a time, saves a bit of untangling.

works wonders on the genoa sheets that get full of salt.

i used to do that till my mum caught me with the rope in the machine & there was no way she was gonna entertain washing it with the hook wrapped up so did it in a bucket outside with some persil
