What hardware to bring halyards over a cabin house?

The boat is a Pearson Triton. I want to bring the Spinnaker halyard, boom vang and topping lift back to the cockpit. Everything else will be on the mast.

I'm not sure what hardware to use.

They will be coming back from the base of the mast. They need to go parallel to the deck (or close to parallel) because the dinghy will be on top of the doghouse on chocks. So they need to go under the bow of the dinghy, then up the front of the doghouse and then along the doghouse top.

I'm not sure if I can use deck organizers at the edge of the doghouse, can they take line at an angle?

If not deck organizers, what would I use? And what would I put at the base of the doghouse to make the bend? I'd ideally like everything to be fixed and not have blocks involved.

Thanks for your thoughts!

Can they come off the mast at the height of your cabin instead of the deck?

no, because the dinghy is going to be in the way. At least not the way it's going now.

There are over and under deck organizer type blocks. Get a Harken catalogue. It's a great source of what's out there and where to use it. Depending on how many and where you need to run them, the cost could get spendy if you go that route. Might try Garhauer Garhauer Marine Hardware -8794406. Their hardware is quite nice and way cheaper than the usual suspects.

You probably could run the line over the deck using plastic bulls eyes with stainless inserts.
Schaefer Marine Hardware - Product Catalog

Fortunately you've got a small boat so loads aren't going to be all that great. All but the spinnaker halyard won't have that much tension or friction from passing a lot of line through.

Re: What hardware to bring halyards over a cabin house?

Thanks for the info. While I'm asking, does the arrangement make sense:

On Mast:
Main Halyard
Jib Halyard
Storm Jib Halyard

In cockpit:
Spinnaker Halyard
Boom Vang
Topping lift

Much cheaper to keep stuff near the mast, but it seems like there would be a lot of advantage in having those three in the cockpit.
