Your best bet is to actually measure your boat if you can, any reputable sailmaker will provide a diagram of the needed dimensions. The actual rig dimensions will vary from boat to baot and may be very different from a brochure or even the builders drawings.

I second that. You can measure yourself, or you can consult with a local sailmaker. Be sure to get a really long (50' or more) tape measure to be sure your measurements are accurate. You really don't want to do it in sections using a shorter tape. It's too easy to miss by a few inches, which can be costly.
