A Photo & Discussion Forum for Wharram Design Enthusiasts
The halyards should be listed with the rest of the equipment lists in the plans. They are not necessarily broken out individually, since Wharram lists rope quantities by size (for ordering in bulk.) Under each line size will be a list of what the size is used for.
1/2" sounds a bit large to me, but I cannot imagine they are larger.
Hey Budge, I've scoured the plans and workbook 4 times looking for a halyards but no mention that i can find. Was thinking that less than 1/2" might be hard to grip. Thanks for the response.
for sails this size I think 1/2" is at the big side. 3/8" is probably fine . bigger halyard is easier to grip but also needs bigger blocks and is a bigger pile of line to deal with and will tend not to run as freely through the blocks
That actually makes it almost half the price for rigging the boat. Thanks again!
I've checked the other multhulls in this club in the 35-40' range and their halyards are 1/2" to 5/8" but they are single masted with huge mainsails on tall masts with single halyard, so i'm going with 3/8.
The equipment lists are in the often overlooked spiral bound yellow book, not on the actual plans or in the construction booklet. This is the book that gives all of the block sizes and quantities, line sizes and lengths, etc., etc.
Pretty sure i did not receive anything like that. I might contact Wharram.com
Yes, I do have that but in green. It lists everything from hardwood, softwood, plywood, epoxy and fillers and standing rigging but not running rigging.
Well, that is strange.
i've emailed them
