I've been sizing wire for my new mast on my Garden yawl. Got it all figured out per Skene's but then when I look around on the web a bit I see values substantially lower than what Skene's gives. For instance 1/4 " wire per Skene's is 8200# but only 6900# per Worst Marine and a few others. Defender has all the old values that I'm familiar with. WM has 316 stainless and 304 at the same values, others say 316 is less. Defender has 316 at the same values as Skene's. So basically it depends who you ask. I'm inclined to just go with the Skene's values and forget the rest since we've been using it for all these years. Has anyone else noticed this?
