spinnaker is the double roller, the side hole is for the main. the rollers allow the spinnaker to be hoisted quickly . the main is hoisted and hooked off and then tightened by the downhaul

Re: M-20 Scow - Main Halyard

I'd have someone look at the mast and determine if it needs to be repaired. That is significant damage.

If there is a loop in the halyard it was probably adjusted with a small purchase system with a hook at the end. Put the hook in the loop and tighten the purchase.

I don't see the shark teeth cleat you're refering too?

M-20 Scow - Main Halyard

I recently acquired a 1981 Melges M-20 Scow in need of some TLC. In a previous post, we worked through my issues with something we’re calling the “mast ram”. My next hurdle is rerouting the main halyard.

It appears the previous owner performed an emergency repair. The halyard is designed to run inside the mast. On my mast (pic #1), the halyard exits the forward side of the mast through a nasty “DIY-style” hole. The halyard is sawing down the mast, creating a keyhole type opening.

I’ll reroute the halyard to run internally.

Question #1 - Where does the halyard exit the mast? I see two possible exits on the mast….1) an oval hole on the port side of the mast (see green line in pic #2) and 2) a recessed double-roller pass-though (pic #3). Currently a spinnaker line exits the oval hole.

Question #2 – How does the halyard “cleat”? In pic #2 there is a “shark-toothed” unit riveted beneath the port-side oval exit hole. The halyard ends in a loop. I could see the halyard loop hooking onto the “shark-teeth”.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
