An update for you all...

The stuffing box concern turned out to be a leaking cockpit hose.
We had the marine fella who has worked on the boat previously check it, and the leak was on the starboard side in the aft cabin area. Anyone familiar with a 1987 CS30 knows you have to be about
5 ft, 120 lbs soaking wet and have the flexibility of a member of the Cirque group to get in and back there.
Luckily for us, our boat guy meets that criteria, and he contorted his way
back there last night, replacing the hose.
We are going to clean the bilge and all of the grids on the floor this weekend
and towel them bone dry to monitor the sitch.

Regarding the new halyard, I thank you all for your patience and advice as I spin into this learning curve at mach 11.

Cheers!
Kim
