My SeaScouts Tanzer 26 jenny halyard is wire line combo. To change out headsails crew must reaqch up s to 4 feet to hold halyard shackle. We sail her int he winter and it can blow. Safety concern is reason for switch. Youth overboard in winter is not good. The mast head sheaves are for wire and are VERY thin. Impossible to run line. The Mastehead separations between halyard sheaves makes in a machine shop task to change out the diamer/width. We do not race and sail her maybe 20 times a year. I was thinking about rigging a yoke under the forestay and attaching a very strong block. Presently we end up with about 3 feet of wire to deal with once we raise the jennys. Any ideas that wound necessitate $$$$$$
