Is it correct to have DIFFERENT VALUES of renderding points following a BRAKE TEST carried out by ship staff on board a tanker . To note that MBL of all wires put in place is 50.6 Ts.

The brake rendering point must be set to 60% of the rope's MBL (Minimum Break Load). In your case, all ropes have the same MBL which means corresponding winches rendering points to be set to the same value of 60% of the rope's MBL equal to 30.36 TS.
