This weekends job is to replace the 2 reefing lines , I can use rule of thumb measurements but thought I would check if anyone knew the exact lengths on the 355?

Matt - do you mean that there's nothing at all in place now, not even mousing lines?

Just did it last year.  I swap original ones for 8mm dyneema (SVB ref 550142 & 550144).
I took 24 & 29 m.  Approx 2 m more than needed.
On Selden boom plan a 3 h job two handed.

I can't help with the lengths required but thought I would point out that each reef actually has two separate lines on the Selden rig.
If you are looking for off-cuts this might help as you don't need a single  longer length of line.
Selden have some good documents on how the reef lines are set up.

I replaced all of my running rigging on my 341 last year and ran 24 meters for #1 reef and 30 meters for #2.

The following is how the reef is led on my boat.  On my Seldon boom the #1 reef line attaches toward the aft end of the boom with a knot tied to the aft slide on the underside of the boom (there are two slides, one for each reef).  Be sure to do a full wrap around the boom prior to tying your knot to spread the load. Then lead it trough the lower grommet in the leech, through the internal block at the aft end of the boom and forward to the internal boom block at goose neck.  At this point you lead the line up to the first reef point along the luff of the main.  Hopefully you have a block installed at this point (if not, simply lead the line through the grommet). Lead the line through the block and back down to the fixed block at the mast step, then back to your cockpit as appropriate. The #2 reef will be self-explanatory once you master the #1.  

Hopefully this helps.  If you need photos for explanation just PM me and I will shot some or a video later this week.

Thanks Ken, so no need to remove the boom to gain access to the internal block? I was under the impression on single line systems that one end of the reef line was dead ended at an internal boom block?

We may be talking about different systems.  Let me shoot some photos and PM to you later this week.
