Re: recommendations for halyard attachment??


The sail-end of the halyards is existing wire. All I need to do is attach new working/handling-end sheets. I priced the wire-to-rope replacement kits and all seem to run near to $120. Depending on type/ replace wire with amsteel or dyneema and some other sort for the working end... stayset-x or VPC; I'd end up near the same..possibly a little cheaper

This is assuming that my head sheaves would run the synthetic without changing them out. For now, I plan on the handling-end change to a grade/type of line that , in the future, *may* be spliced to a synthetic. But that's all down the road
