Re: Santana 525 Main Halyard issue
On our 525 we had similar situation. Went with 1/4 Warpspeed w/30' stripped. Works great and crew has no issues with 1/4 on main halyard as it's usually just used at the dock before and after sailing. Tried 1/4" Yale Crystalyne with colored full cover (to aid newbie crew in line ID) and it was a nightmare. Cover is much looser weave than Warpspeed and hung up at sheavebox. Warpspeed is good stuff.
