    Default Dyneema line that isnít brightly coloured

    I have an old wooden sailing boat. All the sheets, halyards etc are either plain white or sort of oatmeal coloured. Very tasteful....We are changing to a loose footed main sail and I am assembling an outhaul, ideally using 4mm and 6mm low stretch line such as Dyneema, but I donít want purple/green/orange lines. I want neutral, muted and Ďclassicí. Any ideas on where I can find this? There is a silver coloured LIROS D12 Pro, but any other suggestions would be welcome.

    Thank you

    Thanks Ninjod - could you point me to the specific product? I only need a few metres of each, not a reel

    Much appreciated

    Marlow do plenty of classic hi-tech ropes.

    Try searching for Spectra as well as Dyneema.

    You can get dyneema-cored buff colour rope in a whole range of diameters - I used some of it on our last wooden boat, it's very nice. Examples here: https://shop.classicmarine.co.uk/rop...sing-buff.html

    Jimmy Green has lots of "classic" dyneema stuff.

    There's a lot of dyneema string about with a white dyneema core and a cover of whatever you choose. You can strip off the cover.
    Silver-grey spectra turns up on ebay and other places.
    There's also vectran, which is sort of pale brown.
    I have some 4mm line with a 'technora' (sp?) core, this is a black fibre with similar properties to Kevlar.
    Classic galvanised wire is still available :_)
