Reefing line specs

Offhand does anyone know what the line diameter is SUPPOSED to be for the reef lines on the CR38? Lengths would be nice too. I'm thinking 7/16 or at most 1/2 inch

sailingfool will become famous soon enough
3/8 line should be fine, the other sizes are too large, check and see what size lines the fittings will actually handle - I'll bet 3/8's.
