Main cap shrouds 7mm
Main lowers 7mm
Forestay and backstay 8mm
Mizzen, (very oddly) 5.5mm
I used 6mm replacement on the mizzen.
I wonder why dyform as the original wire and pin sizes are really well over engineered, perhaps it was to reduce windage and make her sail faster:-)

Subject: [Amel] Original Standing Rigging Sizes...Sharki
Could someone please tell me what size was the original standing rigging on a Sharki ? My boat was re-rigged by the previous owners with Dyform wire rope. The main shrouds are 7mm and the main forstay and backstay are 8mm. The mizzen is rigged in 6mm Dyform. Norseman fittings are used everywhere.
