One more about galvanized rigging
, last one, I promise!
So I've got most all of it figured out now, just about ready to put my order in. Then it hit me, I can't just take the old SS stays to the rigger and ask for the same deal. The stretch characteristics of 1x19 SS and 7x7 galv are different, when putting the rig under tension, things probably won't add up and I might run out of turnbuckle room... All rig tensioning guides are also written around 1x19 SS rigging
, so putting the rig under tension will be a different story alltogether...
How do you size galv rigging? "a little longer"? How little?
I'm going with 7 or 8mm 7x7 galv wire on a 12m mast
Oh, and a little off-topic for this topic, but would you use it in a roller furler
? I'm a tad hesitant because I won't be able to inspect it so easily, but I really kind of don't want to go out and buy a more expensive SS stay just for the forestay...
