Standing Rigging - Production Boats

I found a neat little PDF for running rigging for production boats.

I can not find this same example for standing rigging, can someone point me in the right direction? Or is there a reason I can't find it.

Re: Standing Rigging - Production Boats

i've never seen such a table for standing rigging either. I suspect that the reason is that running rigging lengths are not critical and the materials are fairly inexpensive, so buying a bit extra is easy.

Standing rigging needs to be correct within a couple of inches max, the terminals are difficult or impossible to change, and the materials are pretty dear. Simply changing out some rigging screws can make a fatal difference in a "Standard" length, for instance. One really needs to measure one's specific vessel to be sure.
