The boat was designed for the right rigging sizes, loads. etc. Sometimes when over thinking oversized rigging - the rig "HOGS" the boat when trying to tension/tune, this causes the deck sometimes to "lift" or separate from the hull/deck joints, the head door will not shut, the lockers become stuck, etc. I would thank your dock buddy and stick with original sizes.
