We removed the fouled halyard completely and tried numerous times to drop it (or messenger line) from the top of the mast down. Every time it took a route that made it jam. It's a gamble really.
I have no choice but to address it now -- the stick *may* need to come down unless I don't decide I don't need a mainsail. What a friggin' mess...
