Need some help. I just purchased a 2003 tiger and am getting ready to rig it for the first time. None of my line colors match what's in the manual. Does anyone know where I can find the line sizes and lengths for what location so I can match them up with what I have. I believe I've got extra line but that's just made it more difficult figuring out what goes where. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Congrats on the new (to you) boat. The Tiger is a blast, I love sailing it.

I will tell you, there isnt much info out there about the line length. I've tried to decipher the part numbers and see if there's a size and length hidden in there, but not much makes sense. I just usually measure the boat itself , then buy a few extra few feet and trim it as needed. I also find that I buy line too big, buy the smallest size that will still work with your cleats and Vee blocks.

Good luck!

I measured a few lines before I sold my Tiger:

Downhaul - 31.5' 1/4" (not sure if this was the original or the 16:1 cascade)
Jib Sheet - 30'-38' 5/16" (length is personal preference)
Spin Sheet - 58' 3/8"
Main Sheet (8:1) 40.5' 3/8"
Tack Line (separate) 15' 1/4"
