A few people have used Knothead (aka, Steve) in FL to replace their rigging via long distance. If he is busy right now I would find somebody local.
If the wire rope seems a bit undersized it may or may not be. It may have been designed that way to allow for some flex and bend. Making the stays/shrouds a size bigger may add more stress to the mast. Larger stay/shroud diameter could put more force on the mast. If it was my boat I would probably just increase each stay/shroud 1 size though (says I without seeing it).
Using a vendor like a rigger to do the wire rope work also allows you to share the blame with someone else if anything goes wrong. The road to hell is paved with good intentions.
How do the chain plates on the O'Day 25' mount to the hull?
