Rope To Use When Replacing Wire-rope Halyards

ViestiKirjoittaja JensenBreck » Ti Joulu 05, 2017 16:58

Hi all,

With my repower coming close to completion I've begun looking at my running rigging. It's all old, faded, some of it isn't safe, and some just doesn't look safe. The main halyard and one of the Jib halyards are wire-rope, the rest are all rope (I guess converted at some point in the past).

My question is, do I need to go with the spectra type line for my Halyards, or will a double braid poly be sufficient for my purposes. I'm no racer, just a weekend cruiser/ day sailor/ potterer around the harbour. my boat is a 32 foot so it's a reasonable size. I've spent a couple of hours researching/googling and all the sites selling rope say use the spectra (or variations thereof) for halyards. However, I've also seen quite a few blog type sites where people have been perfectly happy with good old double braid poly.
