Wire to Rope Halyards - Custom Build Instructions

The Jimmy Green Rigging Sales Team are happy to advise you on any aspect of the custom build process for ordering your wire to rope halyards.

The Jimmy Green Rigging Team set this custom build process to start with the wire end that attaches to the sail.

Step 3 - Importantant Advisory

Ideally, the wire should stop just short of the halyard winch because if the wire goes around the winch under load it will eventually take up the same shape as the drum.


The length of the wire should be from the bearing edge of the wire termination to the very tip of the wire inside the wire to rope splice.

Step 5 - Importantant Advisory

Your finished rope length will be measured from the end of the wire inside the splice to the end of the rope
The wire to rope splice is 75cm long, but this is allowed for in the splice i.e. we will add 75cm to your selected length, paid for in the price of the splice
The overall length of your halyard selection online should then tally with your requirements

Once you have made your selection from all the drop down boxes available, the website will generate:

  1. a picture version of what you have chosen
  2. an overall length
  3. a price including VAT, or excluding VAT if you are signed in with an export delivery address

Jimmy Green Custom Build Running Rigging Advisory

The website will accept a length to 3 decimal points. However, this is not usually practicable.

The Jimmy Green Rigging Team aim for a bearing edge to bearing edge measurement which is accurate to within + or - the diameter of the line.

However, Jimmy Green Marine will only accept responsibility for bearing edge to bearing edge measurements to within 2 x + or - the diameter of the line.

In practical terms, the wire measurement is only critical to the nearest 50mm, and the rope part can be specified a little overlong to ensure that it isn't too short.

For a wire to rope halyard, it is advisable to check the wire measurement carefully to optimise the maximum length possible without the end of the wire turning round the winch.

Jimmy Green Rigging Team Whipping Advisory

A whipping is advisable to prevent the end from unravelling and to maintain the integrity of the rope construction.

This not only prevents the end from fraying, but also keeps the the two parts of the line in synchronised tension.
If the core and cover can move independently, the line integrity of the line will be compromised.

We offer a heat sealing option which melts and moulds the end of the rope, and the additional option of a heat shrink band to keep the end of the line bound together.
However, these are only temporary solutions, and a proper whipping is always recommended to guarantee the integrity of the line.

Of course, we understand that you may wish to apply the finishing touch yourself, and we sell all the FIDS, TOOLS AND WHIPPING TWINES to add to your onboard service kit.

Additional Notes for your Custom Build
You can add a note for your own benefit or to advise the Rigging Team of a specific requirement.
This note will appear in the product description in your basket.

Common examples:

Jimmy Green Additional Fitting Advisory

When a fitting is requested from outside the custom build process, it will be assumed that the finished length is measured to the bearing edge of the additional fitting(s)
In other words, the finished length will include any shackles, hooks or fittings.
The same principle applies to special requests for different lengths of loop.

Wire to Rope Additional Information

Ideally the wire should not quite reach the halyard winch because if the wire goes around the winch under load it will eventually take up the same shape as the drum.
N.B. The length of the wire should include the wire inside the wire to rope splice.

Calculate your required rope tail length from the end of the wire i.e. we will allow for the 75cm rope required to make the splice.

The colour of the ball on the talurit splice will match the rope colour as far as practicable.

The wire to rope splicing price includes the extra rope required to make the splice and meet the overall finished length.

Quality Control

The Jimmy Green Rigging Team undertake to check your rope and wire meticulously during the production process to ensure that it is 100% First Quality.

The Jimmy Green Despatch Team make a second thorough quality inspection of each item, including a careful check that it matches your order, before packing it into your parcel.

Please take extra care when ordering because once a bespoke item has been started (cut) it can neither be cancelled nor returned for a refund.
