Re: Mind Your Hi-Tech Splices!!!

So you feel good about sending someone up the rig on a 12 year old halyard? Skied or not, it's 12 years old and high dynamic loads take their toll.

If you have a 42 footer, I wouldn't complain about the cost of halyards. 10 years is a good run, I'm just suggesting replacement.
