Re: PSC 37 running backstays...
I replaced the wire with properly sized Amsteel Blue.
Lighter weight, installed with splices, stronger.
I currently have a fiddle block rig that NiftyNickers discusses but some (including master rigger Brion Toss) make a case for doing away with the fiddle blocks and just running the line to one of the jib sheet winches.
