Thanks for the feedback. The wire in question is the larger of the two sizes. Since they are the upper shrouds, the closest to the compass is 9 feet. It has had no effect on the compass thus far, but we will swing it anyway when we commission the new engine. There has been no cleaning(or inducement) of the wire so far(steel wool...), and all 5 wires from that spool are the same as far as magnetic properties. I'll get out the multimeter and check for any problems. All the rigging is bonded together, and the smaller wire exhibits no magnetic properties. Thanks again...
