Re: Need Rigging Advice

Braided is best for running rigging. It's the lowest stretch, won't kink as much, and is much stronger for the same size. That being said if you opted for 3 strand it would probably work just fine. That boat probably originally had 3 strand on it. Is there a reason you will need to splice it? Braided is much more difficult to splice but if you had to you could always do a whip splice.
