seabreeze_97 is on a distinguished road
The boat may have been designed with the right size rigging, but for what type stainless? The current 316 stainless isn't as strong as older 308 (which mine was equipped with). Using the 316 absolutely would require a step up in size to maintain the original strength specs, if this is the case. Maybe that's what the rigger was speaking of.
