what size turnbuckles for colubia 29

I'm going to replace my standing rigging on my col. 29 1974. Does any owner know the standard shroud diameter or the size turnbuckle I would get? Mine has this kind, and I intend to get the same kind:

Why not get a set of calipers and just measure the rigging?? Your best bet, if the mast is down, is to take the rigging off the boat and take it to a rigging shop. Given the age of your boat, you probably should have a rigger look at the chainplates and mast tangs as a precaution.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
