I would also take the mast down and check the mast head sheaves. It might be worth replacing them so you can use all line halyards. Synthetic halyards, with a dyneema or spectra core will work better than rope-to-wire halyards, and can be flipped end-for-end to help spread out the wear on the line.


Get Brian Toss's book, The Complete Rigger's Apprentice. That covers what you're doing fairly thoroughly.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
