Binoculars won't help. It's got internal sheeves with a crane on top. The previous owner offered to help splice Amsteel to rope but if this didn't work I would be out the cost of the new rope and still have stuck sheeves.
you could 3/16" amsteel on that boat and it will still work if the sheeves still need replacing. the line will only cost $25
