Re: recommendations for halyard attachment??
the shackle/splice issue is to attach the rope halyard to the wire halyard.. not the sail/s. Existing rig has/had snap shackles and HB shackle for attachment to head/s. Simply looking for advice on easy; but semi-permanent attachment of control lines.
Why not go to all rope halyards? There is no good reason for wire halyards on a 27' boat - they are a leftover from the days when wire stretched less than rope.
