Re Cal 2-29:Diameter of Running Rigging?
I think you will find that 3/8" is sufficient for a cruising sailboat that is not a regular racer. You should visit the web site of Mauri Pro Sailing and go to Rigging and click on Halyard Selector then enter the make and model of your boat. It's a great tool and you will find all the info you need including the lengths of each halyard. Once you know the diameters and lengths, you can also get quotes from our own Sailnet, New England Ropes or Milwaukee Rigging. CajunRope.com which is in Canada is worth checking out as they sell individual halyards complete with shackle or complete running rigging kites which include jib sheets and main sheet etc. They quote in US Dollars and ship to anywhere.
