Frequently asked and answered questions

If your question does not appear in the FAQs, please do not hesitate t

Contact  Rake Rigging.
Why does Rigging-online offer almost exclusively Harken fittings?
Rake Rigging has deliberately opted for a number of key makes. Harken is one of them. This of course relates to the quality of the product but also to the quality and service offered by the Dutch importer. This means that practically all Harken products are rapidly available. Harken also offers excellent guarantee conditions.

We are of course also able to supply other makes of fittings. This certainly applies if your yacht is already equipped with fittings from another make. Under the heading offer, you can request an offer for products not featured in our webshop.
Why does the rope advisor tool offer so few colour choices?
The rope advisor©tool has been set to predefine colour charts for sheets and halyards. These colour charts tie in with the international standard for example from Selden. By consistently sticking to the colour charts there is less risk of confusion, on board. In our rigging practice, more than 95% of our customers opt for these colours. All the colours and styles used by us include as little white as possible, so the ropes stay looking good as long as possible. For sheets we always use the darkest colours, because these are most susceptible to soiling. For an overview of the colour charts check out the ropes tab page in our webshop. 
If you want to replace a halyard within an existing colour scheme, you can choose for the so called "Free halyard" In that case you canchoose from all theexisting colours.

 
Why do I still experience stretch in my new halyards?
People often expect the new Dyneema® halyards to not stretch at all. However, this is not the case. There are a number of reasons why you still may experience stretch in the halyards:

1. Constructional stretch
A newly made rope that has never been placed under tension needs to ‘settle’. This is known as constructional stretch. This ‘stretch’ generally disappears after a number of hours’ intensive use. 12-plait cores have less constructional stretch than 16-plait cores.

2. Creep
Creep is the permanent deformation of materials subjected to tension load over long periods of time. Dyneema® also experiences creep, although to a very limited degree. Dyneema SK78 demonstrates the lowest creep, hence our decision to offer this product to sea sailors and competition sailors (racers).

3. Slipping stoppers
Because new halyards often stretch less than their predecessors, greater pressure is applied to the stoppers. Particularly if stoppers are able to handle a wide range of diameters, the lower diameters in the range tend to slip. The solution is generally to fit new stoppers or new cams. We are also able to thicken the halyards at the stopper point.

Why does Rake Rigging not supply polyester halyards?
In principle, we do not supply polyester halyards for luff sails, because it is our opinion that Dyneema® halyards are the best type for every type of sailor. With slightly more wind, stretch in the halyards always results in poorer sail profiles, a situation which is just as annoying for a cruiser as for a racer. We only offer a polyester alternative for spinnaker halyards and for day sailors and inshore sailors.

The range of Dyneema halyards comes in five qualities:
- 16-plait Dyneema®(70%) and Polypropylene (30%) mix
- 16-plait full Dyneema® SK75
- 16-plait Dyneema® SK75 and Vectran mix
- 12-plait full Dyneema® SK78
- 12-plait full Dyneema® SK90      

For the applications for these cores, check out the overview of applications on the ropes tab page.
Why does Rake Rigging only offer spliced halyards?
We only offer spliced halyards because following knotting, approx. 30 to 40 percent of the breaking strength of the rope is lost. The splicing of a Dyneema® rope appears simple on Internet films, but making the correct splice in a well made rope is often a tough job even for professionals. For that reason we prefer to supply fully finished halyards, so we are certain of your safety on the water.
