This may seem like a silly question or it may seem like something you never thought of.  Well in any case, here it goes. If you go offshore, a compass is a simple tool that can get you home safely.  Even if that expensive GPS stops working, the compass will point North.  With that info, you should be on your way home.

# What do I need on my boat?


                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            As obvious as it might seem, you need a life jacket for everyone on your boat.  By the way, they should be on the people on the boat. You might say, I'm a strong swimmer - not if you get knocked out as you fall overboard.  I like to bring everyone back that I took out with me in the same condition they left.  A yellow polypropylene line that can be attached to a retrieval float is a good idea as well.  Yellow is easy to see and polypropylene floats so it can be seen easily.  That's it for today.  Keep everyone safe so they can tell everyone what a good time they had, By the way, we sell the rope.
All the best, John

Hi - You may have wondered whether or not nylon or polyester line is better.  Well, they are both great when used for the purposes they are intended.  Nylon is the strongest traditional line.  I recommend double braid nylon because it is a bit stronger than 3 strand and it does not tangle.  Because it stretches, it is ideal for dock lines, anchor lines and mooring pendants.  The stretch is great, because it allows the line to withstand substantial stress loads without worrying about it breaking.  Polyester line is great for sailboat running rigging because it does not stretch easily so your sails stay where you set them until you change the settings.  Again, double braid is the easier and stronger line to use.  So, for sailboat halyards and sheets on your boat, I recommend polyester.

Hi - How long should my halyards be - It reminds me of what Abraham Lincoln said when he was asked how long a man's legs should be - He replied - " I think a man's legs should be long enough to reach the ground"  -   If you need new halyards and you have a set of halyards that you are happy with, simply measure the length and diameter and you got it.  We can make a set up for you from premium double braid polyester which has super low stretch characteristics.  If you are missing a halyard, let us know the exact boat you have and we will do the research and let you know what the manufacturer recommends be happy to make up a set. The research is FREE
