Lost Line

My earlier post includes a nice photo of the flag billowing behind the lighthouse.  Since then, the line snapped and we almost lost the flag to the wind.  It was saved but our attempt to run a new line through the pulley, which is about 9 feet away from the top of the tower, which is about 60 feet high, met with disaster.  The new line broke away from the old and now we have to figure out a way to put a new pulley and run the new line through it.  Any suggestions are welcome.  I’ve considered fishing line with sinkers perhaps shot through the old pulley.  DH plans to install a new pulley with the line already threaded through it by attaching it to a long pull and snapping it on.   I’ll keep you posted.
