wire to rope on a Cal 30 mainsail?
went to raise the mainsail in the dark, didn't use any light at all, didn't hold m'hand correctly as I was raising it and the wire halyard got jammed -- took about 25 minutes to carefully 'unjam' it. One frayed wire, cut palm of hand several times as a result, and then I got to thinking, whey not rope?
1. just as easy to jam?
2. I like the idea of rope over wire anyways?
Benefits? Drawbacks? You guys are a wealth of info here and I do appreciate it.
