Pearson 27 Mainsheet system

A friend just bought a Pearson 26. I was checking over the boat and asked about the whereabouts of the main-sheet and block etc.

it appears as if the PO can't find them.
It has end boom sheeting.
It has a traveler on the transom.

We had the boss check the heft of the 3/8" line compared to the 7/16" line and were not surprised to find she preferred the 7/16".

So what is the typical purchase setup on this boat. They are not racing, they are new sailors husband and wife. 4 to 1, more?

The only thing we could find a WM was this:
Part 053 and 058

Little Fiddle Block with Becket, 500lb. SWL, 7.0oz. from HARKEN

But that is only for 3/8" line.
Also I'm not sure that 4 to 1 is enough.

What would you recommend.
I'm going to recommend that they ask the PO to look a little harder for one thing. We are talking couple three hundred.
