I'm refurbishing a Tiger and need to replace both bungees that go inside the front crossbar. One is for the crew trapeze lines and one is for the jib sheets.

I can't find anything that specifies the diameter and length to use for each.

Thanks,

Mark

Mark,
It's all up to you as to what you install because the Tiger isn't really a OD boat.
For instance my jib sheet is a continuous line (end for end splice) that runs thru the front crossbar. the trap bungy's are pretty much the same diameter no matter what boat you have but the length would change depending on if you run a block inside the crossbar to double up on the stretching of the bungy and to a minor extent the length of your crews legs ;o)
If you plan on sending your crew up front to check the tip of your spin pole often then you might want to have a several purchases worth of bungy in the crossbar he,he.
I personally don't think a lot of bungy is needed for the crew trap as I have them go out on the aft (skippers) trap wire when flying the chute.
