Halyard diameter 5/16 or 1/4"

Recommended Posts

We find that the 5/16" high tech main halyard never gets pulled hard enough to take a set. That causes it to creep down as the day day goes on. So definitely 1/4" for that one.


The jib halyard gets taken up and down often so that is less of a concern. The only reason I see to stay with 5/16" on that would be for comfort/feel to the hand or if the halyard you have is still serviceable.


1/4" size of a given type line is less expensive and puts less weight aloft. 1/4" will do the job.
