C&C 25', standing rigging replacement

Anyone know where I can find the specs for replacing my standing rigging? I'm in VA and my little boat is in FL. Apparently, there were a few slightly different versions of the C&C 25 and I'm not sure which one mine is. Mine was built in 1972. The mast is 30' 2" long. Does anyone know if there are any variations in the standing rigging specs for the different versions? I believe the rigging is the original and it's about time for replacement...
thanks

Lambchop!

I'm at work right now but when I get back home later tonight or tomorow I'll dig up some links for you.

Right now what comes to my mind is the C&C Photo Album web site
C&C Yachts - C&C Photo Album & Resource Center


The C&C listers will also probably jump on this as well.

Good luck.

I have a J24 and with 5000+ built there is still no such thing as a STANDARD lenth in fact my mast was built with the wrong size pin in the headstay and backstay which the rigger pointed out and was corrected

As a result IF you want a trouble free job the rigger will copy your old parts and advise to anything that can be inproved on

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Thanks for your responses. I agree and would only replace the rigging using the old stuff as a template. I'm trying to get an idea of the potential cost and for that I would need the specs. I've owned the boat for the last 25 years (my little boat spent one of those years in Chesapeake Beach), and I haven't done anything to the standing rigging. I'm fairly certain that the former owner didn't modify anything either. I looked at the C&C site and it looks like the only information available would be to buy the owner's manual. But does the manual contain the rigging specs? It's not clear from the site info. I emailed C&C a week ago and have yet to receive a response.Thanks.

Thanks-
That's very helpful. I would guess my stays are 3/16ths also, but I'm not certain. My mast is 30' 2" - that's probably close to a J24's mast, right? Also, that was through a rigger and not done yourself, right?

tommays has it exactly right. You really wouldn't be well advised to have a rig built from any "standard" specs.
Wait until you have a chance to either measure or better yet, remove it and have it duplicated.

I know it'a bigger boat, but hopefully this will give you some reference: I paid an internet vendor roughly $850 to fabricate new rigging for my Catlaina 30. It has a 40' mast and uses 1/4" and 5/16"wire with 8 turnbuckles. I put it up myself with the help of my marina's yard crane. I then had the thing checked by a local rigger to make sure I hadn't screwed anything up. Total cost for all, $1,250. Quotes from riggers all came in at $2,500 to $3,000. Definitely pattern from the old rigging, but take into consideration where the turnbuckles are set. If the old wires have stretched, and you make the new wires to match, you'll quickly run out of adjusting room as the new wire sets in.

Are we there yet?

Thanks for the responses. I'm seriously considering doing the job myself. I have a rigger that has offered to help me out and check my work. Anybody have any tips or advice? I'm planning on using Sta-locks.

I replaced my rig on my 24' Islander for a whopping $40... just a reminder to consider galvanized!
