Sheet tube - plastic

Choose from:

  • 1 mm internal Ø (2 mm OD) x 1000 mm long. PTFE, flexible.
  • 1 mm internal Ø (2 mm OD) x 500 mm long. White, stiff.
  • 2 mm internal Ø (3 mm OD) x 1000 mm long. White, stiff.

The small PTFE flexible tube is used to form an exit for any control line or wire through the deck where it is necessary to pass a complex route. Suitable for Dyneema lines up to 75 kg breaking strain, D75 or wires up to 0.8 mm Ø.

The small white stiff tube is used to form an exit for the main sheet line through the deck. Suitable for Dyneema lines up to 75 kg breaking strain, D75. The aft end is normally at the transom with the forward end just ahead of the winch.

The large white stiff tube tube is used to form a watertight trunking in which a length of elastic (E120 or E150) can run to tension the main winch line. The aft end is normally placed midships, far enough forward to give the required sheet travel length between the exit of the sheet through the deck at the stern and the connections between the main sheet line, the tensioning elastic, headsail and mainsail sheets. The forward end is normally placed in the bow. The elastic line is terminated at the forward end by passing it through a small ball (ref. 088-050) and knotting it. Replacement of the elastic is eased by using a length of single strand rigging wire with one end bent to form an eye/hook that is small enough to pass through the tube.

Bond in place under the deck using epoxy glue.
