standing rigging measurements for P-26

I have a P-26, 1978 hull#1498. The standing rigging was stolen. Pearson gives some measurements but nothing for the split backstay. dan Phifer with the Pyxis gives a before split measurement of 25'?? and an after split length of 10'??. does anyone have a tight measurement on this? thanks

In my opinion you'd be better off making a set of rigging with the top terminals swaged on and then the wire left long and open ended. Attach all the pieces and step the mast using halyards to hold it up. Add a few temporary extra halyards just to make it a little more secure by hauling up double blocks with the ones you have. Then with the mast in place, use mechanical fittings at the deck.
It's hard to get exact measurements for rigging even from sister ships. With the backstay, I would just leave the splits long and open.

I can't believe that someone would steal another mans rigging. May it bring them bad Karma.

Good luck.

You certainly don't want to waste material, but you definitely will be upset if they are too short.
I usually will make open-ended shrouds or stays about as long as the pin-to-pin measurement. That way you have the length of the turnbuckle to play with.

I spent the better part of a Sat afternoon measuring the fittings' positions for the rigger to rig our new mast - previous owner neglected the chain plates resulted in the stick snapping. This is a 1979 P-26OD with the split back stay - with the connection from the single to the double being a single plate. My rigger is adamate that we use a double plate at the junction b/c of the fork terminals - is this overkill ($$$)?

Thanks,

JP

It depends entirely on what the diamond plate material is, how thick it is and how far from the edges the holes are drilled. Some off the shelf diamond plates are sold as pairs and should be used that way.
Unless you have a reason to believe that your rigger is less than honest, I would trust him. After all, you are paying him for his experience. Should you not get what you are paying for?
