Going Wireless – replaced the wire jib halyard

Posted on

My wire job halyard was getting pretty frayed so I decided to replace it with New England Ropes VPC line. It was a pretty simple thing. Had the line spliced at the local Westmarine which now has a rigging shop. The rigger came to the boat and helped remove the old line. Grabbed the shackle from that line and measured it. Old line was 85 feet. I made the new one 90 so I can have a little extra for when I run the line to the cockpit. Here are some pics.
