R32 Mast clean/rigging sizes

What wax and can I up the wire sizes?
Posted: 1 Apr 2012 - By: Cariblue
Having now dealt with my R32 hull (antifoul stripped, hull polished and gleaming) I now turn to the mast.

Most of the anodising has gone on the mast so can anyone suggest a good clean and wax system? I'm assuming that re-anodising is out of the question cost and practicality wise?

Also I note the inner shrouds are 5mm and the backstay/outers are 6mm. I don't know if these are the correct wire sizes but I would like to up them to 6mm and 7mm? Has anyone tried this? On my previous boat I upped the wire sizes and this seemed no problem.

Many thanks
