Re: Need to rig my main halyard

For others looking at switching from wire-rope to all rope, here's $0.03 on experience so far: changed 1/8-wire x 3/8 braided rope to all 5/16 braided rope. No problem feeding new 5/16 rope and no problem using it to raise either jib or genoa. I have 43 year old Marine England V-sheaves which I will change on my 2nd trip to the top of the mast (will see what they are on my first trip, order new sheaves, then install). Also ordering up a new main halyard. This is for a 24 Vivacity by Russell Marine
