If you change from wire to line for your halyard, you have to change out the sheaves at the top of the mast.
1. With a wire/rope halyard the sheave has a grove in the base of the sheave for the with with a wider one for the rope.
2. With an all line halyard you will want the appropriately sized grove to fit that halyard.
