Jimmy Green Marine recommend Stainless Steel 7x19 flexible wire rope for all standing rigging applications where the wire will be required to bend.
The 7x19 construction provides enough flexibility to run round turning blocks making it ideal for e.g. the lower element of adjustable backstays and also for wire to rope halyards where the wire must run round sheaves.

Jimmy Green Marine operate a strict accountability process for every reel of wire that the Jimmy Green Rigging Team use and record the corresponding batch number on every rigging order.
