Re: rope & wire halyards vs all rope halyards
You usually need to replace the masthead sheave (wheel). Even if the groove is wide enough to accept the rope, the groove often so chewed and rough from having the wire run over it that your new rope halyard will get eaten up in no time.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
