Pearson 23C

Hi there.

I'm the new guy so please be gentle on any etiquette errors.

So, I picked up this little 23C and have sailed around with it a couple of times. The last time the wind picked up and I realized I just need to bite the bullet and rerig this thing.

You probably know far better than I that they only made about 42 of these little guys; mine is #14; and the paper work is very sparse.

I was hoping someone could help me with the topping lift? or backstay? Not really sure how to hook this up. I asked the local rig shops down here in Destin, FL and they said all the right words, but I got the feeling they didn't know much more about rigging a Pearson Catboat than I did.

Here's what I currently have:

Any help would be greatly appreciated,
