Ballooner Halyard


Patrick McAneny
 

The previous owner apparently did not use the ballooner much and I have not either. I would like to replace the halyard for the ballooner and was wondering if I should have a eye spliced in one end ? How do you normally make it a continuous line , connecting the ends? Do you use the pin of a  shackle to slide in and out of the groove in the hooker? I have never been on another Amel to see how this is set up and executed . 

Thanks,
