Re: recommendations for halyard attachment??
There absolutely are options today that didn't exist 30 years ago. Heck there are options that didn't exist five years ago...
I think what he meant was, just because there are new options available doesn't mean you have to replace the currently installed system that already works. I'm completely in tune with that sentiment.
That said, I discovered a meat hook on my main halyard, and that's why I'm considering a switch to a different system (all-rope,) given that I have to replace the halyard anyway. I also like the idea of just tying the halyard to the main, rather than using a shackle at all.
