Maybe it was all those parts I ordered since last year but I really appreciate seeing our 310 listed vs using "other" I'm not sure when this happened either.


Still for the record I really do cross shop and support SBO, to me the line service they offer is perfect for my needs. Last year I replaced 3 lines and I hope to bang out 3-4 more this year with SBO.

It's funny, i sent them an email asking why they didnt have the 310 on their site.. i got an email back saying the build numbers were too low for this vintage.. but then 2 weeks later, there it is!

JRT - I am looking at replacement cycle for my lines - who is supplier that you mention, SBO? Is it this site?

Got it - thanks!!

Can I ask how challenging was it to replace the lines? I have never done this previously and am concerned about those that go through the mast.

So I've replaced everything except the halyards. For me take pictures before starting and then I run the new line as I remove the old line. A trick I've read is to attach a smaller diameter line to the old halyard, this creates a leader line. Pull the old halyard out with the leader line attached, this then can be used to pull the new halyard through the mast. Another way I was told is to attach the new halyard line to the end of the new halyard line, the way I told was to sew them end to end with thread.
