Re: Replacing wire halyards with line on Columbia 26 MKII
I despise wire running rigging. Unless your halyard is all wire, the sheaves are configured to handle both wire and line. Changing to all line the same size as your existing tails is a matter of joining the tail of the old to the head of the new and hauling them up & over. I've done it many times.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
