Thanks I kinda like being a noobie. But I have no pride at this point at all. I love learning.

congrats on your first outing!

Halyard must never be let loose. when ever I take it off the main I make sure it's secure at both ends, with some kind of tension. it's amazing how quick a line will run through to the end when you least expect it.. like "oh.. I just let it dangle while I flake the main"... ZIP! 40 + feet in the air she goes!

Topping lift or the line that holds the boom up should always be released or slack. Some boats with Boom struts like yours has use a simple cable and hook, on the back-stay for "parking" the boom.

Re: S/V East Coast Lady make her 1st trip in 4 years under sail

I will go to all rope soon. I just tried last month and screwed that up. I got the pilot line stuck between the sheev and the mast. It was a nightmare. Luckly for me a nice guy went up "with me cranking him" and pulled it out. it took like 3 hours to do it. I am afraid to try it again. but I must. I have the new double yacht braid 3/8 for the job. The day I tried it was windy and I did not keep tention on the line and the wind took it over. I will do it on a calm day. You can read abought it here. S/V East Coast Lady: Climbing the Mast
Thanks for all your help. talk to ya soon.

Should be shackles for those connections, or a pin at the gooseneck that goes through a couple of reef tack hooks for the tack itself.

Halyards are probably wire/rope spliced together.. typical of that era. If you're getting wire into the clutch/stoppers the wire portion is probably too long. If you want to shorten the wire portions to keep the rope in the stoppers that's a service a rigger or even a local West Marine etc might provide.. be sure the overall length is still enough before you cut.

Going to all rope halyards will be something to add to your 'wish' list.

All this is tough to do from a distance based on a few pictures. I'd urge you to befriend a more experienced sailor and try to get some one-to-one advice in person on the gear you've got, and how to put it all together.. Half an hour hour of such a persons' time will set you on the right path quickly. This is something I've done many times for others, so I'm sure there will be a suitable candidate in your area.

Hereís the deal on that. I may have had the wrong halyard hooked up because its 3/8 to s/s wire and the wire came thru the lock down block on the side of the mast and thru the deck pulley? Not sure on this one?
..
The main halyard is the line exiting from the aft-side of the top of the mast. The only thing you might confuse it with is the topping lift, but you know where that goes...be sure that the halyard is running clear...i.e not wrapped around anything such as the topping lift.
