Size of shrouds on Catalina 36?

I have what should be a very simple question that the great google machine seems incapable of answering:


What size of wire (diameter, not length) is normally used on the shrouds of a Catalina 36?


If anyone can answer that, it would be really, really helpful.


No, I don't own a C-36, and surprisingly there isn't one at my marina, so I cannot just "go measure one."


I'm trying to determine if I can use the mast tangs from a Catalina 36 on a completely different rig. The bolt hole and clevis pin hole sizes are an exact match. The prices from catalina direct are *by far* the best I can find.



Before I order them, I just want to verify that they are built to handle the same loads as I need - and my thought is that in addition to the bolt/pin diameters matching, checking the wire diameter used is probably the best way to gauge that.

Normally 1/2" pins on chain plates and mast tangs are used for 1/4" and 9/32" wire, and 5/8" pins are used for 5/16" and 3/8" wire.

This should cover whatever the C 36 uses.

Exactly where I was going to go for measurements, catalinadirect. The nice thing about these boats i you can still buy all the parts form Catalina.
