Hi all more queries on my parker mk2

For the main halyard are people using a wire main halyard or rope?

I have a rope halyard at the minute but my other query is where to tie the halyard off. at the minute im tying it off to whatever I can. there is a hook rack on the mast which I assume is where it should go to but as I have no loop to use the hook.

what would other do? take rope halyard out and fit it with a wire halyard to use the hook rack? or find a place to put a new cleat?

Thanks

I have a rope halyard and a clam cleat at the bottom of the mast. Is it possible to replace your wire hooks with a cleat. Halyard is Marlow excel racing I think.
