Running Rigging Questions


It's about time I start thinking about running rigging. I have a Catalina 30. I will be replacing all of the running rigging as new. I have some questions before I break out the debit card however..

I will be sailing in the Chesapeake Bay during spring and summer and venturing further south during fall and winter. My ultimate goal is to be able to make trips over to the Bahamas..

Using NE Ropes nifty little online rope selector, I think I should use Sta-Set X for cruising or upgrade to T900 for racing (or something comparable from other brands).

I've also looked at Amsteel and Amsteel-Blue by Samson and the Dynex Dux from Colligo Marine.

Can anyone give me pointers? Have you replaced running rigging on a 30 footer and what did you use (and what kind of sailing are you doing)?

Thanks a ton!
My complete refit is taking completely too long!
