Hello all,

What are the options for hardware for the masthead on a wooden mast for my glen-l 14? I built a solid douglas fir mast with a groove routed for a boltrope on my mainsail. what do I put at the top of the mast for the main halyard to run over?

I read about mortising out a space for a sheave that the halyard travels over, but i forsee many problems with this....the halyard coming off the sheave when there is slack, etc. how should i secure the main halyard at the base of the mast?

How do I attach the stays to the mast?

Please help

I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
