Thanks Dog

Thats exactly my intention, I would run the new line thru the masthead using the old halyard but i suspect the sheaves are too narrow. The rig really needs to come down for inspection and maintainance but times are tough and all he wants is to repair the steaming light. The only reason for wire halyards if you think about it is windage and having them for casual sailing is a hassle more often than not!
Thanks again
