Rigging Advice

I have a 1977 Venture 21 that's been on a trailer for several seasons, and I finally have the time this spring/summer to get her back in shape.

All of the standing rigging is rusted, and all of the running rigging is frayed. Before I go into West or anyplace else, can someone offer advice as to what gauge, and how much, wire and fasteners I need to replace the standing rigging, and what diameter/materia/amount ofl running rigging I should purchase?

Thanks to all,

Paul, click on the following hyperlink to go to the trailer sailor website at http://trailersailor.com/. On the left hand side of the home page, click on the word "forums." They have a forum specifically for MacGregor/Venture. If you don't get a satisfactory response there, ask your question on the general forum.
Also, the trailer sailor site has a tool that can tell you what running rigging you need. You type in the make and size of your boat, and it will tell you the size and length of running rigging.
