When BCC 115 was commissioned I got the following list for
halyards/sheets:

RUNNING RIGGING LINE SIZES ? BCC 28


Mainsheet - 1/2" - 96'
Jib top sheet 1/2" - 96'
Staysail sheet - 1/2" - 55'
Reacher sheet - 7/16" - 115'
Main Halyard - 7/16" - 80'
Jib Halyard - 7/16" - 85'
Staysail Halyard - 7/16" - 60'
Reacher Halyard - 3/8" - 100'
Down Haul - 5/16" - 60'
Topping Lift - 5/16" - 80'
Jib Furl - 5/16" - 60'
Main Reef Stops - 5/16" - 60'
Boom Vang - 3/8" - 40'
Lazy Jacks - 1/4" - 13', 14'6", 13'6", 15'

The sheets were either Stayset or Staset X (I can't remember). On the
staysail sheet I changed to 7/16 as that size fits the #16 lewmars
staysail winches better.

Hope this helps
