Any recommendations on where to buy Genoa sheets and what size and length is needed?

Tom:

See page 19 of the Owner’s Manual: you’ll need two 50’ lengths of 7/16” Dacron line. Defender Marine is a great place to order them from, especially if you have Defender One Account (extra low price). If I remember right, they have both racing quality and cruising quality lines. You can also get them from Catalina Direct—their web site is very easy to use: select your boat, the item needed, ... easy peasy.

I would go with defender. I bought a headsail halyard from them a couple of years ago, and it was half the price of the same line at West marine.

I'm very happy with my Jib Sheets from Defender. I also had them whip the ends for me, they are top-notch.

Suggest Defender too. I purchased a replacement main backyard from West Marine, didn't open the package for 6 months to check the length, found I was shipped 1/2 the ordered and paid for length,  and WM absolutely refused to replace it. Mike MSent from my Galaxy

I have also had great luck with Defender. The manual recommends 7/16"
dacron genoa sheets, 50' each.

I also highly recommend Defender. I have purchased two halyards and a set
of lines for my Garhauer jib sheet cars. While not specific to your
question, I use them to splice a shackle onto the halyard. What has been
more helpful is getting them to add a Flemish eye. It makes removing the
halyards for winter storage a piece of cake. All that to say I have never
had an issue with their splicing or whipping services.

Defender is a great source, and I think I bought a replacement jib sheet from them 2 years ago. But once you decide how fancy a line you are willing to pay for (how much $ for how little stretch), you can shop the internet for whoever has the best price on that brand of line.

Also, unless you have multiple jibs you probably would never need to disconnect the sheet anyway, so you can buy one piece 100 feet long, and fasten the middle of the line with a cow hitch through the leech cringle on your genoa. That eliminates either a knot or a splice and shackle, and makes the jib slightly less dangerous if it's flapping around in a strong breeze.
