Would like to replace the wire to rope halyard on 1987 pearson31 with all rope. Has anyone done this and what type line and any problems encountered with stretch or sheaves.

I replaced both my jib and spinnaker halyards with 3/8" Samson low stretch line without any problems. I bought 110 feet of line for each and that left me with plenty in the cockpit when the shackle end is hooked to the bow pulpit. I sewed the new and old lines together with waxed twine. That made it easy to pull through the sheeves without any hangups. The sheeves on my mast handled the 3/8" without any problems.
