What Rigging wire for a PSC37?

Hi all,
My surveyor suggested that my rigging wire is undersized. Can anyone tell me what sizes are standard?.

Thanks in advance,
John


Cheers,

John,
On our 34 we upsized from 1/4" to 9/32". A rigger here told me he would have gone with even bigger to 5/16". The turnbuckles for all three sizes use 1/2" pins so you could go bigger, if you wanted, without modifying your chainplates.
