How to retrieve a halyard from masthead???
I once pulled up along side a bridge and grabbed the halyard with a boat hook. Another time, I rafted my 25 footer up to a friend''s forty footer, pulled the mast over with the jib halyard and grabbed the main halyard. I doubt that you can make your PVC boat hook idea work but who knows until you try it.
