That's where I found my number too.
I'm just about to start on the rigging so if anyone has any suggestions i would appreciate them.
Particularly the size of the turnbuckles
I have a 1/4 inch for the back stay
A combination of one 3/16 and one 7/32 for the shrouds (I'm assuming the 7/32 would be for the mast head shroud - i don't have spreaders on this boat, and the 3/16 for the shorter shroud)
I don't have any rigging for the forestay or the baby stay.
I was planning a quick release device for the forestay, any suggestions on size??? Should this be in combination with a turnbuckle if so what size.
Also what should I use on the baby stay - a regular turnbuckle? if so what size.
I'm assuming I should be using regular pins and rings to connect these turnbuckles to the shrouds and stays, and to the deck fittings (i did consider the spring loaded pins but decided these might pull out unintentionally with unpleasant effect!
