Rigging resource book?

Hello all,

Is there a good book on modern rigging standards? I'm interested in getting my triton rig more suited for longer voyages and would like a book that had some strong ideas about how to rig things. Particularly preventers, I've seen a lot of contradictory things about how to rig them.

Anything out there you can suggest?

Thanks
Paul

Try a search on "Selden" - I've seen repeated links to it as a good rigging information source.
