How to avoid halyard/extrusion/forestay damage...?
Just came across this thread. I know these were posted 5 years ago, but anyone out there dealt with this issue successfully? I'm a newbie and just bought my 1988 Catalina 30 with original Hood furler, and second-time out shredded the Halyard. Went up to run a new halyard and noticed the forestay wire was starting to fray. The rigger at the yard said I probably furled too-tight and wound the extrusion around the forestay. 1 new forestay and several rigging hours later, I will be back on the water this week but want to make sure this doesn't happen again. Any advice?
