Halyards - what type rope?

Posted: 1 Aug 2015 - By: Geoff Crowley

I'm thinking to replace the halyards on Contender (main, genoa and spinnaker).

What type of rope is best for this? Current ones look like polyester triple strand. They have done many years, but are getting tatty, dirty (washed a few times but...) and exposed to a lot of uv over the decades.

Polyproylene? polyester?, nylon, something else?
