Topic : Jib Halyard

Another of my quick questions!

I have a mast for my MR (old Girl) 908. The jib halyard is knackered. Can Jib Halyards be constructed from high load low stretch rope like dyneema or the like?

Thanks in advance

I saw a N12 with a dynemma one once, suffice to say it was changed later that evening to a wire one. Since I am also having stretch problems with my D12 lowers, I would always recommend wire for any high load application ....

Thanks Andy,

It was just a thought. The loadsI doubt will be very high given her age and the need to avoid the boat closing up like a clam with too much tension! Might give it a blast and see how I get on.
