What is the point of working load limit rating then?

Load Limit Definitions
The Working Load Limit is the maximum load which should ever be applied to the product, even when the product is new and when the load is uniformly applied - straight line pull only. Avoid side loading. All catalog ratings are based upon usual environmental conditions and consideration must be given to unusual conditions such as extreme high or low temperatures, chemical solutions or vapors, prolonged immersion in salt water, etc. Never exceed the Working Load Limit.

That is what I am going off of and 1/8" was 400 lbs.

I figured the force of the wind on the sails and my 200 lbs hanging off the side would be greater than 400 lbs of force.
