Resheaving Main Halyard

Thanks, Tom. I really didn''t want to unstep the mast.

One variation I think I''ll try: instead of taping the halyard to the fishing line, you can get a more secure connection by using a leader clip at the other end of the fishing line to connect to a sewn loop in the main halyard. You can then drop the fishing line down and pull the main halyard up without tape or soap (I think soap would be messy from the bosun chair).

Thanks again.
