Sailboat Lines by Application

 

This selection guide will allow you to find some recommended line options for most running rigging based on the particular application of that line. We base our recommendations off of a balance between price and performance for each of the different applications. For keelboats we list a Club Race option. This is considered a performance upgrade for cruising boats or a budget option for racing sailboats.

Select line you need from the list below:
