Web pages says.....
"It is stronger than steel, floats, and will not absorb water. It is very slippery and will not hold well around cleats, stoppers and winches. Apply a polyester cover material to the area of the rope where it needs to be winched or cleated and lock-stitch the cover to the core......."

These miracle fibers are interesting. We use some in the backing for flyreels. Smaller diameter means more backing - good for fighting big, fast fish. If you tangle with it, you will get cut deep.

Just to close this thread, West Marine was very good with the follow up. They are sending new halyards free and prepaid mailer for return.... no rush in returning defectives.... sorry for the aggrevation. Nice bunch of people. The Rigging Shop said they get bad wire from time to time (every 9000 feet or so) - just the way it is these days. My turn for a little bad luck.
