Re: Halyard fishing: One main halyard retrieval method that worked.

(I was Skyeterrier's fishing buddy that day and responsible for the runaway halyard to begin with.)

Yes to additional halyard. Issue I saw was no additional pulley at the top of mast. We did discuss replacing the topping lift line with something more substantial to climb the mast, but wanted to try this technique first.

Guess we could just bolt an extra lightweight block to the side just for radar device and flags etc. - maybe next time we ascend the mast!

Cheers!
