You only have to have it happen to you once to know, but if you’ve ever had your plastic traveller fairlead snap whilst sailing, it is perhaps the most annoying and disabling thing that can happen on a Laser. One minute you’re cruising along without a care in the world and then “BANG!” a $4 fitting snaps and your day is over.
The solution, upgrade your plastic fairleads to Almag fairleads. These aluminum fittings will never fail and you won’t ever have to think about them ever again.
It’ll be the best $40 you’ll spend on your boat.
