I am looking at replacing the running rigging
on the Cal 28
I am in abit of a quandry as .. when I review the original specs per the Cal 28
owner's guide (yes I know .. circa 1967) .. it calls for main and jib
1/8" 7X19 ss with tails 5/16" dacron yacht braid .. I measured the ss and it is indeed 1/8" ss .. but the tails are 3/8" ..
My problem is that I am trying to identify sizing as I wish to replace with spectra .. (I also have a professional rigger coming to inspect the standing rigging
.. which I may replace if needed .. with spectra as well).
Can anyone offer any advice?
Thank you in advance.
