Rope main halyard

I have always used a rope main halyard but it needs replacing. Can anyone recommend what type and thickness I should use ?

Hi George, How are you cleating/tying off your halyard? That might make a difference on the sort of rope that's right for the purpose, but in general I would go for 4mm spectra or dyneema (basically the same thing). This material is very low stretch. With or without an outer cover depending on my first question :-) Our friends at P&B or Rooster have a good choice online and usual include details of suggested usage as well. Cheers, Guy 5691

Hi George, Dinghy Rope are also worth talking to - sponsers of the midland circuit. Barrie 5642

sorry to be old fashioned,but a wire haliard and rack and exact height settings with no chance of slippage or outer wear is good
