    Second halyard stern hoisted dinghy

    I have a second halyard. I currently have the halyard holding up my dinghy (without motor) off the stern, horizontally, out of the water. I’ve sailed with this set up and it seems to work well. I’m curious however, to know if there are certain things I should watch out for given the extra...

    O'day 192 halyards to mast set up

    Hello all, I'm new to sailing and just bought a 192 that appears to be in great shape. I have the original manual for this boat, but it only refers to how to raise the sails, not how to rig the halyards themselves up the mast. For the main, is the halyard interior on the original masts? If so, I...

    How to install/snake an internal halyard?

    I want to install a halyard in the mast. There's already a halyard in there, but I think it's twisted around something else in the mast. There's too much friction compare to the other halyards. So I want to pull it out and re-lead it through the mast. Are there any professional methods for...

    Mast whatzinfidel?

    Hey folks, thanks for reading- I just purchased a 1994 Seaward 23 and one of things that is going to keep me up at night is replacing the little plastic fittings on the mast where internally run halyards come out as well as the mainsail track entry fitting. All three of these pieces are broken...

    Lewmar OP2 Electric Winch problems - circa 1997 - discontinued winch

    I installed the Lewmar OP2 (larger than the OP1) on my h40.5 at delivery in early 1998. Although it makes horrible noises (always did) it has performed OK for the last 19 years. A couple days ago I used it to ascend my mast twice. I normally do this twice per year- spring and fall. I did not...

    Halyard rope sizes

    I am going to change out my halyards. After reading what Ed posted sometime ago, I would like to go to 3/8" T-900. Is T-900 overkill? My staysail halyard is seized also, so I would like to drop down to 3/8" to clear room in the mast. Do I need the added strength of T-900 if I am going from...

    I would like to delve a bit deeper into this subject that started on another post (Shroud Connections). Thank you Jackdaw for your input on that thread. For starters, I would love to see some pictures showing spinnaker halyard sheave installations on H26 with preference for installations with...

    Mains halyard

    I'm planning to replace my Mains halyard but isn't sure what size I've after measring it with a venier calipher. For my H326, should i go with 3/8" or 7/16" ? The h320, h326(2002) & h326(2004) Owners Manual is missing this info. I've thought of swapping halyard with the assym but the assym ones...
