I have consulted the FX1 parts manual only to find a photo of a yellow line threaded through the mainsheet system and a ref 17560419. Does anyone know the specified line diameter and length for the mainsheet? Also what was the original purchase of the mainsheet system 7:1 or 8:1? The boat I'm working on right now has an older style Harken 7:1 that does not run well. I'm considering going 6:1.

Thanks in advance,

I can measure my FX1 length and diameter the coming days.
About main sheet system:
i have two triple blocks and each fitted with a single block attached to give higher purchase.

After checking today:
Length: 13 meters sharp
Diameter: 12 mm

My main sheet is as on your picture - same color and i assume it's original (except the difference in the blocks i wrote before)
