Had a halyard block failure on our first real shakedown sail with the new sails on Syntonos. Weather threw us a curve with chute up. Boat was very comfortable in the 12+ winds buzzing along at 7+knots . I happened to be filming at the time of failure.

You can view the video on you-tube

halyard failure

My youtube page is syntonos

Video resolution got messed up somehow I'll fix it when I get some time.

Fully expected to find weak points as I dial up my sailing. Just not this soon.

Still Having Fun...... headed for the woodshop!

mine one one more block along the bottom part of the mast for the halyard , so the uplift force from the halyard becomes only partially vertical , that redcue the stress on the timber rail.

Spinnaker Halyard options

Thanks for the input boffin, I thought of that but chose to stay with the original lead as I like the layout for quicker hoists and dousing. Check out my latest post to see how I handled the repairs.
