There isn't room for much in there...

One way to get more space would be to go with high-tech line, which I am considering. As you can see, the spin halyard is moving around in the same space.

that's a tight fit. I think my mast actually provides enough clearance that chafing may not be so bad (but on the other hand should anything happen to the cotter pin, clevis pin certainly has more than enough space to back out and go AWOL)

An example of a good surveyor.

He looked at everything and took MANY photos. Removed every panel on the boat that had wire behind it.

It was worth the money. Even though I would have eventually seen things like this, he brought thing to light that might have gone unseen for years.
