Re: Conversion to Internal Halyards

Its on my list do in the next couple of months. When the rigging was replaced with Dyneema Dux a few months I had the rigger check what would be involved. He was a bit concerned about the work that be involved in getting thru the plate under the sheaves on the LaFiell mast. Probably something best done with the mast off the boat.

I have decided to pull the mast which will be the first time its been off since the boat was orginally set up. Run the internal halyards, replace the wind instrument cable with a NMEA 2000 cable and perhaps the rest of the wiring (smaller gauge due to LED lights ??) and replace all the lights with LED versions.
