40/40 main halyard length and material

40/40 main halyard length and material

Postby Riki » Tue Jul 10, 2018 9:35 pm

Our spare halyard broke last weekend and we want to make our current main halyard into a spare and put a new main halyard. What would people recommend for the material? Does anyone know the length that is necessary - we are thinking about 140 feet - does that sound right? What's the best procedure for threading the new line through?

Thanks for your help,
