Re: SM spare halyard on main mast

Juan de Zulueta


I have the same mast head on my SM#32.
Using the hole at the front there is a big eye as per the picture attached on which you can put a block for a spinnaker or genaker halyard.

Well, obviously Amel changed the mast top during the production of the SM to allow for a specific mounting for an external halyard. I am betting Mr. Amel resisted this addition.😀

This is another simple reminder, that although SMs look alike from the beginning of production until the last one produced, changes were made a lot more frequently than most of us realize. I try to remember when answering a question to include this statement in all answers.
