As my user name suggests I own the1,280th Lido 14 built. Currently my main and jib halyards are two part wire and rope. I've heard rumblings about replacing these with Spectra/Dynema and was looking for some advice. My first thought is to simply replace the cable portion and doing away with the shackles on the sail end. However I have no idea if this is a valid though or not. I know many racers who replace it all with a single piece of line but I hear using the cleats with the thin slick line can cause issues. Thoughts?
