Pancake weights

Recommended Posts

Pancake weights are generally used on outside riggers to provide a small amount of extra horizontal separation (when you bend the tail of the weight slightly off center).


Dan Keating runs pancake weights on his boat and talks about them in detail as part of his seminar (I think he covers them in one of his videos also, maybe the second one).


The Wingers are supposed to do a similar job with regular weights. I had never heard anyone running both until the post directly above this one, but it could make sense to do so if you feel that additional horizontal spread is important for your boat's particular layout and how you rig your lines.
