Are these numbers correct?

Copied & Pasted from the C25 PDF file.

I'm going to have new standing rigging made. They will have my originals to copy from too, but I want to give them some written data.

Are these numbers correct for wire size and type?

I think you've discovered a very old typo.

My guess is all should be 7x19 stranded stainless cable.

I don't think so. 7x19 is more flexible, and commonly used for running rigging. 1x19 is stiffer, and generally used for standing rigging. 7x19 is seven little cables wound together, each one made up of 19 wires that are relatively fine. 1x19 is just 19 heavier wires wound into one cable.

BTW Erik... You see the specs for the wire-to-rope halyards. You may have seen discussions here about replacing them with all-rope (generally 5/16"), which many of us have done. That requires replacing the mast-head sheaves (from CD), the originals of which are generally toast by now anyway. Just thought I'd mention it since you're looking at the original specs.

If you have wire sheaves, and a existing wire to rope halyard, the wire needs to be flexible enough to bend around the wire sheave. If you have all rope sheaves and rope halyards, which is what most newer boats have from manufacturer, go with all rope and don't worry about the wire. If you go wire to rope, make sure you have wire load sheaves and wire according to mfg. specs. It was not a typo, there is a reason why wire was different for halyards as previous poster said.

Have you looked into the sets from Catalina Direct? Mine fit like a glove, and according to the rigger who installed them, were very well made. An important feature is the bronze open-body turnbuckles.

I too recommend the set from CD. It was easy and fit perfectly. You do have to let them know the length of your backstay. Very competitive price. They really know these boats. That said I don't know why your doing the riggers job. If I hired a rigger I would lower the mast then hand him all of the old rigging and let him do his job.Its what your paying him for and if he makes a mistake then it's on him to correct it.

At @$650 I doubt a rigger could beat CD's price for a full set of shrouds, but of you choose to go that way he should do all measuring and installation and guarantee his work.

I can recommend the fellows over at Catalina Direct. I replaced my standing rigging a bit at a time. Perfect fit every time. Your local guy might be great, but don't forget the fellows over at CD. They know our boats well.
