Halyard set for Catalina 34 MkII. Dacron jacket over a Dyneema core. Includes whip widgets to finish off the bitter ends.
We often have customers ask if we can splice their new halyards. Although we provide spliced halyards for some applications, the Catalina 34 masthead will not accommodate a spliced halyard. Remember, your masthead was designed for wire halyards. If all line halyards were spliced, the splice would jam between the sheave and the masthead before the halyard reached full hoist. We recommend staying with a bowline to attach the halyard shackle as the factory did when newer boats were equipped with all line halyards.

The length of this item is based on the original factory specifications. However, the previous owner, like Captain Jack Sparrow, may have had an entirely different idea about how to rig a boat! Please confirm this is the correct length for your particular boat. We cut it from a long length and can't splice it back together again. Your order cannot be canceled, returned or exchanged, but, like Jack, you may have a different idea of what you can use it for!
