  1. What kind of halyard line?

    Gear & Maintenance
    Hello Sailnet experts, we need to replace the halyards, main, spare, and jib as they're pretty worn out. The snap shackle opened on the jib while sailing, and when I used the spare halyard to hoist up the jib again, it basically fell apart internally (though it still held). The boat is a 40'...
