Re: Need to rig my main halyard
my worry would be that the halyard has jumped the sheeve and is now wedged alongside the sheeve. Fixable but not with a simple tug!
when I had a coronado 25 (and taught folks how to sail on it). I had a big rope loop just above the halyard shackle. If hayyard go putted to the top of the mast, a hook on a long pole could snag it and pull it down. Another option is a continous halyard - ie a big loop
