The 42 and 43 usually used 5/16" or 3/8" for the headstay, 5/16" for the rest of the main shrouds, and 9/32" for the mizzen. Running backstays used 1/4" vinyl coated wire. Is the main a 50' single spreader, or a 55' double spreader mast? The mizzen should be about 32'.

The 55' main has intermediate shrouds also.

I can possibly look up the information on the drawings I have, but need to know the rig.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
