Re: Amel Maramu 1984 Standing Rigging Specifications

   My Maramu has the Nirvana mast.  Main lowers and inermediates are 8mm, caps are 10 mm.  I was told by a reliable source that a Maramu has yet to lose a mast if that information needs to be updated feel free to let me know.  Personally I would not alter the design.  Not only will you add weight aloft, you will be drilling out fittings on the mast for larger pins and could thereby have a weaker rig with the heavier wire.  

   Especially if you have the fiberglass mast box, go easy on the mizzen rigging tension.  I have seen quite a few of these mast boxes damaged from excessive compression loads.

I am about to change the standing rigging on our 1984 Maramu with the Isomat mast and no furling. I was in contact with ACMO and they offered a rigging kit, but for the Nirvana mast which I understand is the one after 1985 with furling. I could not rech ACMO since, but will keep trying. A rigger in Tahiti who supposedly has done other Amels says after consulting with ACMO he would use 10mm wire size, at least for the stays. Currently my main mast is all 8mm and mizzen all 7mm. 
What is the wire size on other Maramus? Did they maybe change wire size with the mast in 1985?

Help much appreciated!
