"We are the original builders of Windchime. We used 3/8" line, and found that using nylon was the best type to use as it stretches and then rebounds, where as other synthetics, once they stretch, do not return and then hang slack much sooner…"

"I tried using thin spectra (about2 or 3 mm) for our shroud lashings as I did not have much space to put the lashings through.  However, When taking it off we found it had frayed and I suspect that the thinner lines are less durable if there is…"

"Hi - I have a Pahi 42. For lashings we use about 10m of 8mm pre-stretched multibraid line, although I am planning to downsize to 6mm as it seems to stay tighter longer (can get more purchase when tightening it). I haven't seen a Narai for a…"
