Skipjack 14 foot Sailboat - Need Advice on How to Rig
I have been given a 14 ft Skipjack Sailboat that I am hoping to get back on the water so my son and I can learn to sail together. The sailboat had been on the track to being restored when the previous owner passed away. When I got the boat it had been repainted, but the hardware was all in a box. The mainsail, jib, mast and boom are in fine condition, and I have figured out how to remount all the hardware..... what I do not know is how to replace and rig all the lines.
I have scoured the internet and have only come up with a couple of pictures of one other Skipjack sailboat... and I was unable to get any close up pictures to see how the lines are run....
Does anybody out there know anybody with close up pictures of a Skipjacks rigging .... or how I can get a rigging diagram for it...
The boats were made by the Newport Boat Company... But I cannot even locate that company anymore...
My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
if anybody can help.
