Standing Rigging Question

I have never heard of a Ranger 26 with a fractional rig, but I believe that you are right that there was a tall rig. If you look at the LIS PHRF scratch sheet http://www.pipeline.com/~wayneb/phrflis.htm

It lists only one Ranger 26 rating. You can check the P=26.42 against your boat. If it is longer or shorter that will give you a clue. Of course if it is the same you are out of luck. I don''t know of any source for the proper rigging lengths except that experienced riggers sometimes keep the lengths of rigging parts that they have fabricated in the past. Boats like the Ranger can have some large enough variations in the manufacturing process that without the old set of shrouds it is hard to know precisely how long the new shrouds need to be.
