Well, after all the going back and forth with the up or down a size idea (and almost going down a size and just being done with it), I ended up going up to 1/4" 316 1x19 with aircraft eyes swaged on. I contacted a place my brother used for his pearson
and the quote was almost half the money
as my nearest rigger: Price
was outrageously friendly so I immediately pulled out the credit card and paid over the phone
- 6 wires with swages $460. I had been told that this place does alot of the production boat rigging
including some premium brands. Their price
was almost as cheap
as I could buy just the wire alone! Ill keep the thread up dated for future reference as to how the measuring worked out and also the product itself. Thanks all for the help, maybe in another five years Ill look into that Dynex... but by then we'll have kevlar or some such thing...
