This is what I found on the intranet. I highly recommend getting a Loos gauge for setting up your rigging. Shooting from the hip just invites losing a shroud and having to buy a new mast someday.

SANTANA 22 RIGGING TENSIONS

Wire thickness = Loos Gauge setting (lbs)

5/32nd wire = 30 Loos (uppers)

3/16ths wire = 35 Loos (lowers (upgraded from 5/32nd))

5/32nd wire = 900 lbs (forestay)

1/8th wire = 350 lbs (backstays)

Cheers!
