    Call Catalina. They are very supportive of the C 30 community, and I suspect they might have done some cocktail napkin type calculations on what standing rigging sizes should be. I second or third the Rigger's Apprentice suggestion. Rigging is a system, and making one part of the system bigger most likely leads to imbalance not greater system strength.
