This is my first post since taking ownership of #56 Mo Cuisle, formerly Inherit the Wind.  I'v already learned a few things from the listserv.  I'm sure I'll have more questions as I get to know her.

A previous owner rigged the topping lift with 1/8 inch braided line.  I this a racing modification?  The line runs from the end of boom to a block at the masthead to a cleat near the bottom of the mast.  The line seems too stretchy, but I've only ever seen wire rope topping lifts.  What is the preferred or OEM rig for the topping lift on these boats?

I haven't owned a boat in over fifteen years, and I ended up buying this one in July and it was the first one I looked at when I considered ownership again.  These are special and beautiful boats.
