Hello CR friends,
Does anyone have a standing rigging drawing for the CR38 ( I own an '84)?  I'm not sure if the previous owner made changes.  I'd like to start a  slow process of updating the standing rigging as I go.  Any help is appreciated.
Thanks,
Dave

I do not have a drawing but I just replaced all of my sanding rigging.  The fore and aft stays were 3/8" and the remaining stays were 5/16"  All of my standing rigging is now 3/8"

Hi Dave,

This is what was posted on the Facebook owners group files page. Looks like it was all 5/16 from the factory.

The 1993 specs for the CR38 list: " 3/8", 5/16", 9/32" & 1/4" 1 x 19 SS wire standing rigging". 

I would think 3/8" for headstay, cap shrouds and bobstay; 5/16" forward and aft lowers, forestay, backstay and running backs; 9/32" whisker stays.

Cabo did not do the rigging. It was done by a company in FL. they did everything in 5/16th. I looked up the working drawings long ago that had the working loads needed. I wish I could remember what I used but at least 3/8ths for fore and back stay, headstay and cap shrouds, larger for the bob stay. The rest I left at 5/16th. The holes in the chain plates were set up for 1/2"??? for what I replaced.
