Re: Spinnaker halyard for a furling jib??

It's going to be an odd angle on the swivel, but it should work.. maybe be a tad conservative on the luff tension for that trip. Or send someone up with some string and 6 inches of bicycle chain, drop a messenger line and feed the new halyard through first!
