I did pay attention (and it is tricky) making sure the halyards are not twisted around the electric wire... and around other halyards for that matter. Making sure is probably an overstatement - since it is quite hard visually - so I use more like a feel hoisting keeping/touching the other halyard to "feel" if any friction....

I also used the spreader reinforcement as a forward backward split: main halyard and foamed wrappd wire behind - jibs halyard in front.

In term of rigid tubing - I tried light and simple at first - and since it worked did not get further :-)
