And I've been re-doing the rigging of the Blue Moon all summer, so I wanted a quick and easy way to go up the mast. I had my wife add a belay off of one of the halyards. It was aid climbing basically. It would have been easier to simply crank me up with a winch on the halyard, but my little boat doesn’t have halyard winches and the halyards don’t run back to the cockpit.
