Hi Andrew,

	This is what we use. Your results may vary as ours certainly do:

Halyards 8mm
Control lines 4.5mm
Main sheet (double haul) 9mm, more for good handing than strength
Jib sheets (Single) 6mm, (double haul) 5mm
Topping lift 1/4 in, it’s old
Foreguy 1/4in
Spinnaker sheets (heavy air) 6mm, (light air) 4.5mm
Vang 3.5 Amsteel

All very subjective and depending on use as the spin sheets that came with the boat were used to race the Farallones and could have moored the Enterprise.
