just got a new (to me ) 14' wave destroyer and was trying to figure the best length and material for the taglines? is tubular, supple or stiff webbing preferable??
Absolutely NOT tubular. Just flat webbing, polypropylene so it floats. Length is personal preference. I think my tips are 7' and sides are 6'. Some folks like their sides long enough to useas flip lines (8-9') but I don't. I also have a sort of chicken line on the outsides from dring, there's not a lot to grab on a cat.
If your chasing your runaway boat down the river, about 100' sounds rightGumbydamnit said:Are you talking about the lines people put on the bow and stern for something that swimmers can grab onto? If so 7' sure sounds like a bit much. I just run mine long enough to reach the water plus another 6-8 inches.
