Re: Wire to Rope Halyards

My Aquarius 23 came with damaged wire to rope halyards. I replaced the jib with all rope, but jib has a wire sewn into jib.

I went with wire to rope main halyard because mast top sheaves were a little narrow, and I worried line could jam.

I say if the line fits smoothly use it, otherwise stick to original.
