i just bought a 30' sagitta and the main halyard is cable on the sail side braided to rope on the bow side.

i talked to the local sail shop about redoing the halyard, as the rope is fraying.
i was told by the local sail guy that i can just use an all rope halyard....is this a good idea?

wow thanks for all the replies.

i am a sailing newbie (sailed sunfish, hoie cats, and flying scotts as a kid). So please excuse my long list of questions i will have.

Other than trying to pull a larger diameter rope up through the sheave, how will i know what diameter rope i can use. I would like to ude as large as i can as it will be much easier to hand hoist unitl i need the winch on the last foot or two.
