Standing rigging replacment

Before we head offshore we're plannign on replacing our 23 year old rod rigging with new wire. This is a few months away still, probably have it done in the fall, but I'm starting to wonder what to budget for it. Nothing too fancy, we're doing away with the roller furler due to lack of confidence in its strenght. It will not be replaced until we return. Insulated backstay and then a lot (aprox 250') of wire, that's about it. I'm sure fittings and so on will cost a fortune as well. I believe the mast n the Newport 41s is 57 feet from the step. I believe our MKII rig is slightly taller. Can anyone tell me what they paid for a similar replacment. I'm curious abuot any size of boat. I know there are a hundred variables to rig replacement but I'm jsut trying to figure out what to budget for the fall. Thanks
