Replace ropes

Hi there!
I've owned a CL16 for 2 years and I want to replace every ropes of the boat for the next season.
I think I'm going to use Polyester Double Braided Dacron.
My main question is which diameter and which length?

Here are my guess:
- Mainsheet Diameter 5/16" Length 65'
- Jibsheet Diameter 1/4" Length 66'
- Jib Halyard Diameter 3/16" Length 16'
- Main Halyard Diameter 3/16" Length 25'
- Boomwang Diameter ??? Length ???
- Topping Lift Diameter 1/4" Length ???

I can't access to the boat right now, this is why I need your help!

Thanks in advance!
Paul

Re: Replace ropes

Hi Paul. Welcome aboard. It's good to have you here.

There isn't a lot of traffic this time of year, so it's good to get your post.

One detail about halyards, don't forget to double the length: once up the mast and back down to the deck again when there is no sail hoisted. And, don't forget to add enough length to be able to tie a knot at each end.

Good luck with your refit.

Re: Replace ropes

Hello Paul, on the specs sheet for the Cl16 in the C&L Boatworks site we find :
Stainless steel fittings, rigging (1/8") and turnbuckles
Quality 3/8" dacron sheets.

As a new owner of an old 83 neglected Cl16, I also need the size and length for each rope found on this stock Cl16. The boat is now resting besides the house under a well tie-wrapped tarp and ... a lot of snow. I did send an email to C&L Boatworks requesting a specs and parts list for the CL16 because I need to find what is missing to operate the main sail and the foils need
to be replaced. Anyway, I hope somebody will get us these infos and maybe a scan of the owner's manual, as it could be usefull.
I have a Mistral 16 that looks a lot like the CL16 but has a centre boom main sheeting system like the newer Cl16 ( if I look at the photos on the CL site. I can take measures of the genoa and main sheets (Mistral) if this can help you as these are stored indoor.

Re: Replace ropes

Hello Paul , there seems to be a problem with the link to the cl16 manual : I get this message :
You don't have permission to access /44.pdf on this server.

i'll look at the rules of the forum maybe there is a catch \:\)
