Halyard rope size (D & L)
The project boat I'm working on has what I believe are wire-to-rope halyards, but the ropes are missing. I also think the halyards were rigged to over the coach roof and back to the cockpit as evidenced by the bullseye fairleads and turning blocks on the coach roof. However, I've never actually seen this boat rigged.
The boat is a 1972 Helms 25. What size halyard rope (length & diameter) do you think I should use? How is this determined?
(I need to stop logging into this forum...I'm learning wayyyy too much about sailing.)
