Part of the problem is the terminal hardware is very different, so in many cases it would be difficult to substitute wire for rod.
Hey SD; if you had a rod-rigged boat, couldn't you still have an emergency spare piece of wire rigging as you suggest? Not as a permanent replacement, but as a "fix it to get me home" deal?
Or, are they different enough that they would be incompatable even for a short period?

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
