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.
