See my reply in the repairs forum. :)

Regarding bundling up the shrouds & lines for trailering... I bring everything up to the mast & forward, and use plenty of bungees to hold it all in place.

What lines to use? See the parts diagrams in the catalog. Lengths, line diameter and typ is shown there.

You can download the manual for rigging techniques.
