Wire to Rope Halyard Clutch

who makes a clutch for a wire halyard?
the wire on mine goes the entire way to the winch, so i need to clutch the wire, not the rope.
i cannot figure out how to lengthen my halyard to the cockpit, so i have to clutch it on the mast.

Re: wire to rope halyard clutch

Is there a way you can change this out for all rope. I did this on mine as they too were running into the winch, Which haliyard is it.

Shorten the wire !! Im sure if ya cant cut and re splice it ya can find a rigger to fix ya up and I don't think it would cost a bunch !! By replaceing part of the wire for line, you won't need to change winchs. Just a thought

Re: wire to rope halyard clutch

its the main halyard, but its also the mizzen halyard, and the jib halyard.
they all hit the winches with cable.
i don't want to ditch the cable as it has 0 stretch, and i don't have $5000 for vectron for all new lines.

Re: wire to rope halyard clutch

I had the same problem. I bought a $30.00 crimper and some crimp sleeves and cut a couple feet off. Tape a big knot in a piece of rope longer than your mast right where you think you're going to cut the wire and run it up the mast and back down to test that you'll clear the winches and still be able to reach your halyard shackle when you're trying to attach to the sail. Don't assume anything, test them all.
