Re: 78 helms 24

well we are having trouble finding factory specs; however, this past weekend we were able to step the mast, and it turns out we will only need to replace the forward and aft lower stay cable on port side for now. Eventually we will replace them all. We are still new to sloops, and we are not quite sure about what main sheet to go with? Also for those small pulleys (blocks) all over the deck that are worn out but have a pop rivet through them, can we drill out the pop rivets, replace the pulley wheel, and use a bolt in place of the rivet to fix them?
