Re: How do I attach messenger line to the tail of my old main halyard?
Way too complicated, messenger lines and all. Just use the old halyard.
Simply pull about 8 inches of core out of the old halyard end and cut off, then stretch the mantle out alone, through reaving splice, and sew down flat to itself. Bomb-proof and takes only a few minutes.
Heck, there must be 100 ways.
