I just happen to have a photo! Who can I post it to? Can I mention “Fa—-b—“ on this site or would that be rude?

That’s exactly how our main halyard is rigged. Nothing is internal… just a traditional masthead sheave that carries the halyard from the forward face of the stick to the after…

All halyards external?
The masthead on Constance has two pins abaft the mast: one is used for the backstay, and the other for the main topping lift.At least that is my recollection. The main halyard line is external but for the small part passing over the sheave in the mast. Where do you hang a block for an external main halyard? Photos?

I have all my halyards external in Surprise’s rig, as she was when she was built.
We still win races, and I never worry about what’s going on inside the mast that I cannot see.

You would have to provide me with wind tunnel data to convince me that at 6.5 or even 7 knots of speed the difference between internal and external halyards has any valuable significance on my 47 year old boat anyway.
