Re: C&C 26 wire halyard replacement

I heartily recommend getting used to tying halyards on once you switch to all rope. There's no need for that heavy headboard shackle on the end, and no real reason you can't tie a halyard onto a furler swivel head either. Save some coin as well. If clearance is an issue there are compact knots that untie easily.

Also much easier to trim off a bit to adjust for chafe over time.
