Hello,

Does anyone have data on rigging lengths and gauges for Parker 275? Mine is Number 17, 1992, name Kekova. I've owned the boat since 2001 and previously replaced the rigging in 2006 but can't find the details and neither can Z-Spars. Kekova is presently in South Brittany, I'm in the French Alps for the winter, and I have a plan to return to her in spring with the new rigging. Looking increasingly unrealistic unless someone has some reliable numbers!

Thanks anyway...

John

Hi John

Obviously with the caveats that I don't know your boat's set up, I don't know how accurate these figures are and that my boat was the first 275 so things might have changed as the series evolved, here are the figures that are in my owners manual.

STANDING RIGGING
CAP SHROUDS s/s 1x19 6 mm 9.65 m Key + Bottlescrew* 2
LOWER SHROUDS s/s 1x19 6 mm 4.95 m Key + Bottlescrew* 2
FORESTAY s/s 1x19 5 mm 10.15 m Fork + Bottlescrew* 1
BACKSTAY s/s 1x19 5 mm 9.96 m Ball + Bottlescrew* 1
STROPS/TRIANGLE PLATE s/s 1x19 5 mm 2.05 m Fork + Fork 2

*RIGGING SIZES WITH BOTTLESCREWS 2/3 OPEN

I hope this helps

That's really helpful, thanks James. I'm pretty sure there were no changes between #1 and #17. Does anyone else have a view on that?

And you must be very proud to have #1 ! How long have you owned her?

Thanks
John
