Cal 33'''' running rig

heya Jeff thank you for your reply. I have back read most of the responses on this message board going back for 2+ years. So i do put quite a bit weight in your advice.( it would appear you know quite well what you are talking about ) The boat is riged now with a fully wire Main and a wire to 3/8s rope combo on the Jib. I had planed to leave the main alone and duplicate the Jib line in new rope. There are 3 other halyards fully rope one going forward and two on the mast. i am guessing they are for the spiniker or some thing ( there are two spiniker poles on the boat)

You hit the nail right on the head though. IT is double braid poly . I am working threw secosouth.com . They never once tried to even "upsell" me to a better rope. MY sales rep seemed knowledgable though and i was pretty clear about the size of the boat. I guess what is missleading is that 3/8s is the rope i am takeing off the boat.
