kirklarsen is on a distinguished road
topping lift.

when i purchased the boat the mast and standing rigging was up. The halyard for the furler is small in diameter and has a spliced eye . It then travels thru the mast and at some point is spliced into 1/2" double braide that runs through a block at end of boom into a clam on the boom.
I did not think this is correct . so I removed the line line from the boom
and secured it to the mast. I just dont understand why the difference in the halyard thcikness . I have 2 other halyards that I am assuming are for other sails (the angle to the mast is incorrect for the furler rap) Thanks again. kirk
