What kind of wire are my shrouds and stays?

Planning to repair something twice is not particularly good stewardship of what I assume are limited funds.

Well, Dave, check back in with me in three years. By then I should be back in the USA after circumnavigating. Boat is in fine shape, spending six months in Vuda marina. Already spent 2.5 years in Panama for covid. Next season finish the Pacific, 2024 Indian Ocean to my home of South Africa, 2025 back to the USA. Ambitious? Yes, but entirely doable as long as I stay healthy, I will be 70 when I get back, and look forward to proving you wrong.

And just to add, I only motor-sail when hard pressed to go upwind. Downwind no problems. I sailed from Panama to Nuku Hiva in 35 days, pretty good I think for a 4-knot shitbox.
