jib halyard

ok, it seems like a pretty straight forward trick, but I figgured I''d ask now if there''s anything I''m gonna need to do beside shimmy up the mast and pull the halyard through a pully and get back down. should be straight forward right?

Thanks. Sorry for the stupid question, I''ve just had a couple of items reciently that I thought would be easy, that would have been easy, if I had just asked first, but turned into chores because I thought I knew what I was doing.

Thanks.

jib halyard

Ha! Nothing is ever as simple as it seems. Tradition has it (around here anyway) that the main halyard comes down on the starboard side of the mast, and that the jib comes down on the port side. When you run your halyard through the sheave of the block (no pulleys on boats either) you therefore need to make sure the end you''re going to heave on to raise the jib comes down on the port side. btw, If your jib halyard goes inside the mast, it helps to use a length of bicycle chain tied to the end of the halyard and to introduce that into the opening so the chain pulls the line down inside the mast without getting too tangled. Have fun!
