Welcome to the UKWA Home Page Forums Technical Shortening wire halyard Re: Re: Shortening wire halyard


This is only my personal opinion, but I would consider replacing the halyard completely and build-in some some form of adjustment at the outboard end such as http://www.tridentuk.com/sailing/product-Stay_Adjuster___Small-JHHA4172_1.html . Work out your length accurately, incorporating the adjuster set at some mid point and you should have some leeway to adjust the length of the halyard to achieve the desired tension with the highfield lever.
