One option on the rigging, it's not pay and walk away like a rigger would be but it's a reasonable compromise, is to have the mast unstepped and take all the rigging to a cable place that does construction crane cables. The size that you need will be control lines and they can exactly duplicate your stays for much much less than a rigger or even do an upsize for you. They are building it to be supporting men and materials over a city street so they are at least as rigorous about safety and reliability as a rigger will be. I had the stay I needed created while I waited for ~$30. Not every place will do it but the place I found in Dallas one of the office guys was a sailor and he walked it back to the shop personally for me.
