BTW, StaSet is a just a polyester double braid and not really a high tech line.

I had nothing to pull the new cable through with, so I got some cheap wire cable from the hardware store, duct taped the end tapered, and it just shoved right through the entire pathway. This cable was slightly oversized for stiffness.

Next, I generously taped the upper end of this cable to some high tech rope ( might have been stay set) and pulled that through. I tied just a bowline around a thimble and bolted it to the cb. Attaching the upper end required removing the end cap of the roller and using a stopper knot where it passed through the hole in the drum.

I hope to replace it again this year when it gets a little warmer. Other than having to keep the cb trunk clear of barnacles, I've had no problem with the rope cable.

On a related topic, I learned recently that if a cb cable ever breaks on you, it can be wedged up with almost any wood. Wooden clothes pins work great. No need to use a rope bridle tied to the deck to hold it up. What a neat discovery.

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.

What diameter is the steel cable? What size are the sheaves?
