Coming to you from the USA! Today we had a livestream with Luke Berger, owner of Kraken Structures Synthetic Rigging. We talk about Dyneema, and are showing examples of different ropes available, where they are best used. Also boat building, making money underway, and cruising plans for Zingaro…
I received a comment (rather harsh to tell you the truth) about my failure to use the correct toggles in my Dyneema installation videos. Well, turns out the guy wanted to help, and sent me a whole box of goodies.
We went back and forth for over a month, with measurements, drawings, ideas, and here’s the culmination of that work.
Watch how I took my synthetic standing rigging to the next level! I explain everything I did to upgrade my synthetic rigging, what tools are required, and where to get them. Then a step-by-step installation process.
Special thanks to Kraken Structures for the equipment and instructions. I think we’ll be seeing more of Kraken …
A complete how-to on Dyneema. This video took me awhile to make, but I’m proud of it. Been waiting for a long time to put this one out. Here is a great addition to the LVB series. Everything one needs to know about dyneema, including:
What is Dyneema
How to make the 2 splices you need to know
How to make soft shackles, which are ~$1 to make, and could save your boat
