Harken Traveler - Two new 37' Harken traveler lines purchased - 2017

We purchased 5\16 Sampson Rope to replace our 3\8 which is the max for our Harken big boat traveler. These lines are Samson XLS Yacht Braid - Solid Color - Double Braid Polyester.

 We purchased these traveler lines at Downwind Marine in San Diego.
We got two lengths of 37' each and had Downwind Marine rigging splice each end so it would fit over the sleeve on the Harken big boat traveler. We also had Downwind Marine rigging whip the ends.

November 2017 - Tied up in Marina Mazatlán, Mexico
We are currently house sitting in University Heights, San Diego CA
The original line was nice on the hands but difficult to pull.
This line we also purchased at Downwind Marine in San Diego.
The current line which we took from our dinghy davits is, to us, a bit big and seems to bunch up at  times.
The Davit line we installed we decided was too big for what we needed for our Achilles LSI-310E dinghy and Honda 9.9 motor.
This line we also purchased at Downwind Marine in San Diego back when we were rigging the davits.

And yet more parts checked off the US buy list for the next cruising season on s\v Elegant'sea!
