In-Mast Furling Outhaul replacement line

My 2000 year 310 with in-mast furling needs the Outhaul line replaced. I'd like to buy one this winter (boat is winterized) for a spring time replacement.
My owners manual doesn't give me the length or size. (minimum shrinkage) I imagine this has been done before so someone has measured and replaced one.

What you can do is sew a tag line to the end of the outhaul line and pull it through then measure it and order it on line OR take it to a rigging shop to make up a new one.

Catalina Direct says 5/16, 70 ft. But I don't know if that is for the Genoa or Main.

I replaced my main outhaul in 2015. I measured the line that was available, counted the turns on the spindle and multiplied (pi*diameter) to come up with total length. What I failed to do was record the length. I used Sta-Set and it was $104 at West Marine.
