Re: Standing/Running Rig diagrams?

Chiko, if those books don't help, I doubt you'll find anything really helpful on-line since it is tricky to show it all in 2 dimensions and gaff rigs (just like Bermudan rigs) developed over time to suit different types of boats.

Your best bet is to join a Classic Yacht Association and go sailing on a few gaffers.. a lot. That way you'll get to understand what the functions of the different parts of the rig are, how they work and how it is all put together. Then find out which boat-builders in your area deal with traditional rigs and go talk to them.
