Don't mean to hijack - but it *is* closely related - my main and jib halyard are wire/rope, and after 30 years are getting tired. 2011 project: replace them! I haven't measured the sheaves at the masthead, but I am guessing 3/8" (Pearson 323, ~200sq ft main, 45' mast above DWL). So Spectra/XLE/sta-set/??
Defender have pre-made halyards, 90', XLE for $90; Spectra cored for $230ish. I also like the look of Cajun (thanks Dog). Any advice?
