After 37 years of service I have decided to retire the standing rigging on my 26' fractional rig swing keel sloop. The rigging that was original to the boat was 1/8" 19 strand stainless steel wire rope. I have now acquired almost all the tools and materials necessary for replacement with 3/16". Comparing the 3/16" 7-19 stainless steel wire rope to the 1/8" 19 strand makes the 1/8" look so wimpy. This makes me wonder if I have made a mistake and are reaching into the overkill territory, concerned about creating problems because of the larger size Wire rope. I will also be replacing the turn buckles and the rope ends will be nicopress as I have purchased the crimping tool and sleeves. I have watched all the instructional videos and am very confident in my skills but would still welcome any advise on how to be more successful with this retrofit.
