Re: Halyard Slap
I've got external halyards as well, I'll try to explain what I do.
I take the tail of both ends of the halyard to a cleat below the main sail cover and hook them around the end of the spreader. I don't have a pic but imagine the halyards angled away from the mast from the base, outside of the cover, up to the spreader boot, then angled back to the top of the mast.
I do this for both sides of both halyards.
