OX65 – Pro line Optimist upgrade package
High performance Optimist upgrade kit, consisting of outhaul, downhaul and halyard system.
Pro Line Outhaul
3 mm Dyneema outhaul with a partly polyester core for extra thickness which creates grip in the cleat.
Pro Line Downhaul
3 mm spliced Dyneema downhaul with 6 mm Technora/Dyneema for ultimate grip. The non-spliced Dyneema end has enough length to be tied or spliced around the boom.
Pro Line Halyard System
Cordura/Dyneema halyard with a spliced loop on one end to be fixed easily on the mast cleat. The other end is tapered which makes it thin enough to fit through the halyard handle. This halyard system comes with the EX1349 Dyneema replacement halyard with spliced on low friction ring.
OX61CS – Optimax low friction deck collar with mast sleeve Optimist
The Optimax Optimist deck collar is made of Delrin to create minimal friction between the sleeve and the collar. The oval inner diameter allows the maximum fore/aft and minimum side play and the tapered inner diameter allows the mast to be raked. 4 countersunk mounting holes. Hole size in deck: 57 mm.
The mast sleeve is fitted around the mast at deck level and protects the mast from wearing. Optimist mast sleeve as supplied with Optimax spars.
Mounting the sleeve – you will notice the sleeve is slightly smaller than the mast. To mount the sleeve you should gently warm the sleeve with a hairdryer or paint stripper. You can easily slide the warm sleeve over the mast into position.
