Pearson Masthead Sheave

I have a 1972 Pearson 30, and can't raise the jib. I think I need a new masthead sheave. Anyone know what size I need to replace it, or any other suggestions? Thanks.

Do you have roller furling? Is it possible that the halyard is just fouled (wrapped) on the headstay?

If you don't get an answer here, try joining Sailnet's P30 mailing list and asking there. No offense to anybody in the forums, but I've found the P30 mailing list more useful for most P30-specific things.

I can only suggest that there is a company that can make a shave of any size and shape if you need it - and the price is not too bad. They made mine.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
