Is the halyared from the sheave fed through the block? If so......how do we get the halyard that runs up the mast and out through the sheave into the block? This sounds like a stupid question but we are newcomers to this wonderful sport.
Ex:
Our Asail halyard ran up/down totally outside the mast. The mast head sheaves did not come into play with the assail halyard at all. Does that make sense?

Thanks! Yes, that makes sense and is what we will do. We will keep the spare internal halyard for other tasks. The other option of creating an exit for the internal halyard made sense once I figured out that the opening would face upward

The purpose of the spinnaker crane / bails is to get the hallyard free of the head sail.

If you take the hallyard out at he top sheave and through a block at the crane you would get a bad lead - giving chafe on the hallyard.

Then it's better to let the hole spinnaker hallyard run outside the mast

We will be doing an external halyard for this. Thanks folks for the feedback.

Here is a link to the factory rigging diagram that might be helpful. I posted up on Bob Dugan's PSC Owner's Forum:
