W32 Running Rigging

Daniel M. (Guest)

Hi everybody...
I'm wondering if anyone knows off-hand how many total feet of 7/16th running rigging line (full set of halyards, jib sheets & staysail sheets [excluding main sheet]) are needed on the W32. Also, a breakdown of the independent lengths would be very much appreciated!

I'm away from the boat right now, Bud is in Alaska, and my service manual is on the boat! And I'm needing that line to sail the boat home in 2 weeks.

Thanks for the help,
Daniel MacLeod

(3) 100' halyards to masthead, 70' staysail halyard, 90' mainsheet, 90' jibsheet, 50' staysail sheet

Tom, thanks for answering for me. These dimensions for the four halyards are actually 10' longer than those recommended by Westsail, as I felt the original lengths were a little short. The sheet lengths are the same though.
