Optimist halyard system with 3 mm ultra low stretch Dyneema with spliced loops. Complete with the Harken hook-in block and 29 mm Harken tie-lite block.
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.
