Re: Wire to tie shrounds to spreaders?
Several wraps of single strand monel seizing wire is what I would use to do the job. I wire all my shackles, anchor and aloft with it. After all, that is what it is produced for. I think it would be most difficult to get multi strand wire tight enough to do the job properly. But hey, it's your boat so you can do it any way you want. That's the really nice thing about boats. No permits or regulations to get in the way of doing jobs around the boat.
"Any idiot can make a boat go; it takes a sailor to stop one." Spike Africa aboard the schooner Wanderer in Sausalito, Ca. 1964.
