Addiction 2022.3

Notices
Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

Wow! Good job. Can I send your wife a pair of white shoes for cleaning?

So, this was why my electrician was having such trouble pulling cable up my mast. Someone rove the topping lift through the wire conduit when the boat was commissioned by the freshman class at the culinary institute. None of us can figure out how they did it.

My friend with the McLaren plays golf on non-bike days. I think he is a serious golfer, but he is not a doosh.

It actually involves bicycular content. You drop the halyard from the top with a length of bike chain attached to the end, and fish for it through the corresponding mast gore with a coat hanger. Easy to do if you don't foul other lines on the way down.

Was more wondering about getting the TL out, but I assume it's free running. If so, no problem.

I've done the halyard run before. It's not too bad. I attached the chain to a length of thin line such as 3/16 for a leader line, and then run the halyard. Helps a lot to put the other halyards and lines under tension so they are taught and not easily twisted around your new halyard. Usually you can feel if the new one is fouling the existing halyards. Good luck!

I have not run wire down the conduit. Will that be a challenge once the TL is properly routed? Last boat I did away with the boom topping lift and just used the vang to hold up the boom. Hated the TL always flopping around the main roach.
