Re: Optimal halyard length?

don't need to change the sheaves on this boat. go to the yankee dolphin web site and there are many that have changed to rope with the existing sheaves. i think it is 5/16" line and your done. it's only a 24' boat and almost any 5/16" line today can handle the loads of the halyards. I have a friend that did this and it took about 10 minutes to change. they are external halyards
