Rigging Dimensions Database

I have poked around my "owners group" web site looking for info on rigging dimensions and lengths for my 1983 CAL 35 but have so far come up empty handed. Is there a place where I can find this info? CAL itself is no longer around.

It would seem like a good idea to keep this info readily at hand so that when people need to re rig they could make up the rigging without taking the mast down and measuring everything.

Re: Rigging Dimensions Database

I found this site to be useful. Hoping to find a used main sail sometime so was looking for the dimensions.

Sailboat Rig Dimensions at Mauri Pro Sailing

Halyards calculator, too.

http://www.mauriprosailing.com/custo...tion-guide.htm


Maybe I'm off base here because it doesn't actually list the length of a forestay, for example. But rather I and J lengths which I suppose one could figure out forestay length.

But would you build a forestay from this calculation, rather than actually measuring the old forestay? I'm just curious because I would be hesitant to trust my math instead of a tape measure.

I have no experience but will do the job myself when the time comes.

Re: Rigging Dimensions Database

Yeah unfortunately those are just the dimensions that you would use for cutting a sail. I am more interested in finding the actual length of stays and shrouds. The halyard calc is pretty sweet though!

Re: Rigging Dimensions Database

Ah, yeah, no help there for shrouds for sure.

Can't recall ever seeing dimensions listed anywhere before. I could be wrong but possibly construction tolerances precluded these lengths being standardized.

I say this when considering the amount of adjustment in a turnbuckle is not really that much.

Just me speculating and daring to be wrong yet again.
