Main Halyard Replacement




The Dacron Eye that connects to the stainless steel line on the main halyard
finally gave up the ghost (after only 21 years).

Here's my guess on the quickest, cheapest, and easiest replacement:

	1. Run a 1/4" recovery line up the mast using the thimble end of the
stainless steel line.
	2. open up the swedge on the stainless steel line, attach the thimble
to a new Dacron line, swedge the thimble.
	3. Run the new halyard up the mast, Dacron side first.

Any advice, suggestions, etc.

Thanks,
