I'm replacing my halyards and masthead sheaves, adding a spinnaker halyard as my boat did not have one. Probaby won't ever get a spinnaker but I want to have an extra halyard. My question is, does anyone with one of the Isomat masts know how the spinnaker halyard should exit the mast head? There's a pin with two rollers that it looks like the halyard would be routed over (circled in red in the picture below) but that doesn't seem right as there would be a lot of friction and seems likely to jam sometime. Am I missing a sheave there? Alternatively, I could use one of the main or jib halyard exits as there are two for each of those.
