by Lee Mylchreest on 10 Sep 2011
Are you tired of the rattling and clanging that makes sailing sometimes such a noisy pastime? Colligo Marine has a brand new solution for some of those noises that prevent you getting a good off-watch sleep - the Infinite Loupe.
The Infinite Loupe in action SW
The Infinite Loupe is made from Dyneema, synthetic fibre based on ultra high molecular weight polyethylene, 15 times stronger than steel and up to 40% stronger than Kevlar.
Loupes of different sizes can be used for connecting hardware, in place of heavy shackles. It will protect hardware too, as it will not do the damage that steel shackles can sometimes do.
More than that, it is silent and will not rattle or bang on the mast or the boom. The loupes will last a long time, but they are fully inspectable and you will know when to change them
Nine different stock sizes come in three different strengths are available and custom sizes can be made.
Check out the pricing of the various sizes, or make an online purchase by http://www.colligomarine.com/vmchk/Colligo-Synthetic-Systems/i-Loupes.htm!clicking_here.
