4 or 5mm 50ft. 32 strand stainless steel works well.

Lynn what ends are best to be fitted?  

I also remember somewhere someone saying not to tell the chandler what it's being used for, or they may not want to supply.

I put thimbles on both ends and Galeforce up in Inverness said brilliant when I told them and showed the pictures. Get the thimble big enough for a shackle pin to fit and over a tow hitch pin. Then you will be fine.

The higher number of strands the more flexible the cable gets. 7x7 or 7x19 give very flexi cables.

Mine is actually 7x7 as the size of the bundles looked about the right scale as well.
