O'Day 30 Swing Keel Rigging

Hello,

The swing keel on my O'Day 30 simply has a line coming up out of the cabin roof, through a cheek block and then directly to the cockpit. The line is cleated off at the top of the cabin near the companion way. This arrangement provides no mechanical advantage of pulleys and blocks and I must pull with an enormous amount of force to retract the keel (both feet on cabin). Does anyone have a diagram they could send me of how this is supposed to be rigged or could you describe? Any help is appreciated before I break my neck or back slipping at some point.
