    Hello,

    My manual is in storage and my forum and google searches have been unsuccessful.

    Would someone be able to post the shroud lengths for the Capri 18? I realize these may have varied over the years (mine is a 1998), however I would be using the lengths to guide my project to convert my boat to synthetic standing rigging so I would only need them to be accurate within a few inches.

    Thank you for your time and please let me know if anyone would be interested in a thread giving some details of the process.

    I was able to get this from the CD tech support line for the uppers and lowers respectively:

    19' 6 3/4"
    10' 2 3/4"

    This is end to end (eye to end of stud or t-bar to end of stud) not including turn buckles.

    I will be installing a split, adjustable backstay so I just used geometry for that and will not be replacing the forestay at this time so I did not pursue those measurements.

    Again, let me know if anyone would care to see/hear about the synthetic conversion.

    Thank you,

    Kayden
