Thanks to all for your thoughtful and informative input here... It appears that my info from the sales people on Spectra and Dyneema is not correct. I was just aboard and measured my four 304 SS running back stays at 3/8". I really want to get rid of all that weight and go with a solution mentioned in this thread.... Now it's just a matter of money. Any further private input will be warmly welcomed.

Wishing You "Fair Winds, Calm Seas and a Lifetime of Adventure!"
