RE: Main Halyard Replacement




Thanks. After some consideration, I decided to replace the prior dacron with
new 3/8 blue line. It was a little tough getting the eye through the sheave
but works fine.
Good sailing.

I am using all line on replacement halyards now that we have low stretch
line available, The only disadvantage is that there is slightly more windage
than with wire. Most people I know have a long way to improve before halyard
windage is slowing them down.
