Thanks for the help with the halyards! I have one other wee problem I was hoping someone might be able to help me with. I have recieved a kindly donated 2nd hand proctor mast to replace my ancient IYE, but am having some difficulties fitting it to the boat. The shroud connectors on the outers for the IYE had some strange in mast attachment, but the proctor uses those T shaped adapters. I have a set of inners for the proctor but only outers for the IYE. I have put up a post in the items wanted section to see if anyone has a spare pair of outers sitting in their garage, but if I get no joy with that is there any way of adapting the IYE shrouds I have? I really cant afford to be buying new shrouds!
Would be really greatful for any advice,
