Halyard diameter

I don't see in the plans what size my halyards should be for the tiki 46. Individually the sails are small with double halyard. Could i get away with 1/2" halyards?

"Yes, I do have that but in green.    It lists everything from hardwood, sofwood, plywood, epoxy and fillers and standing rigging but not running rigging."

"I doubt that. It is kind of important reading material. It looks like this (except maybe it is different in some way for the Tiki 46)"

"The equipment lists are in the often overlooked spiral bound yellow book, not on the actual plans or construction booklet. This is the book that gives all of the block sizes and quantities, line sizes and lengths, etc., etc."

"I've checked the other multhulls in this club in the 35-40' range and their halyards are 1/2" to 5/8" but they are single masted with huge mainsails on tall masts with single halyard, so i'm going with 3/8."

"for sails this size I think 1/2" is at the big side. 3/8" is probably fine . bigger halyard is easier to grip but also needs bigger blocks and is a bigger pile of line to deal with and will tend not to run as freely through the blocks"

"Hey Budge,  I've scoured the plans and workbook 4 times looking for a halyards but no mention that i can find.  Was thinking that less than 1/2" might be hard to grip.  Thanks for the response."

"The halyards should be listed with the rest of the equipment lists in the plans. They are not necessarily broken out individually, since Wharram lists rope quantities by size. Under each line size will be a list of what the size is used…"

"Ah,!  Mike, that is wonderful to think about...  You will turn off the motors and then raise the sails to the wind one by one until she is powering along with only natural sounds.  I loved the way the sunlight played with the water…"
