    40% Off Sta-Set rope at WM on Black Friday

    Anyone know the approximate length of an all-rope boom vang for a 32-3? Opinions on 3/8" Sta-Set for this purpose?

    This one (4:1 tackle, then along underside of boom, down to deck, through an organizer and back to a stopper) was about 42 feet of 3/8".

    Plus a few feet extra for the eye-splice.

    Awesome Bruce. Really appreciate it. That's exactly how I'm planning on running it--through the port deck organizer and back to the cockpit. So, say 45 ft total....

    I also bought a cam cleat to put on the mast for the main halyard like yours. Do you like the height of yours? Looks to be about midway from deck to boom.

    Samson on sale at Fisheries

    Got an email this morning that Fisheries has Samson line on sale until 12/31

    I spot-checked a few prices, looks like most are somewhere around 40% off (and maybe more, if you have a Fisheries account)
