    Main Halyard: Is a rope to wire necessary?

    No. Never even had a shackle on mine. Just a surgeon's knot at the end of the halyard, push a loop of the halyard thru the grommet hole in the head of the sail, push the surgeons knot thru the loop and tighten up the loop. No need for another piece of hardware that could fail or not properly close.
