You may want to get in touch with the Hunter Boat Association not to be confused with the US Hunter boat manuafactuing company.

Welcome to the Hunter Association

These are the folks that own them and I should think better able to provide you more complete details on sources for acquiring a complete new rig. Owner groups are a great source for the details about a boat like yours.

As much as I like Crusiers Forum I also belong to my own owners groups as well., Having both links in your web browser is a good idea.

A local rigger should be able to provide a quote for replacing the standing rigging and do the work, especially if you're not changing anything.

Depending on the rigger and the rigging, the new standing rigging could be fitted with the mast in the boat. Alernatively you may need to have a yard crane out the mast and do the swap with the mast layed out on saw horses.

Actually a boat your size is fairly EZ (assuming your boat is trailerable). With your mast down take all your shrouds and stays right to a rigger and they can duplicate them........._/)
