KK thanks guys. It is definateley a blue rope, well white with blue dots on it. The mast was mostly rigged when I bought it from the guy. It's seeming like the guy I bought it from raped me on this deal. He knew I was buying a new hobby and took advantage. Anyways, the mast was just about completely rigged, but all the standing rigging had to be replaced. I never touched the halyards. I don't belive the rope is spliced onto them either. It just looks like a knot and some electrical tape for each. So now we have established the fact that it is not right... what is?

The rope backing should come down the mast and into a pully at the mast base? Are they located forwars and aft of the mast, or starbord and port? where do they go after that?
