CS36T Halyards

I am replacing most of running rigging now that I have the boat back in the water from complete bottom job.
The manual I have lists combination wire and braided line for halyards, but the boat came with just braided. I feel the existing lines may be too large, 9/16". I have not been to the top of the mast to check the sheaves, but sure need to. Can anyone share what they are using for halyards and sheets? I would really appreciate hearing from MAINESAIL.
Thanks

Updating a CS36T

John:

I replaced all of the running rigging on my 1981 CS36T last year. I went to all rope - no wire at all. Much easier to work with. Sheaves on CS36T are easily accessible - some may need replacing if they are chipped.

Did you find the CS36 manual? I have been collecting and archiving everything I can find on the boat. Would be happy to share if want anything.

line size

I am new to sailing and am refitting a 82 36T (Kingston). What size and type of lines did you use. My sheets seems kind of large at 3/4. Docklines as well. I am thinking of 5/8 for both. Halyards will be next, what did you use for yours?

John most boats originally came with wire to rope halyards but the newer line technology now makes all rope halyards a better choice. If you go with a high tech line such as Warpspeed it will be stronger and will not have any more stretch than wire.
Go to the Sampson or New England rope web sites where you will find lots if info to educate your self.
