Irwin 10/4 centerboard info

I purchased my first boat this summer, an Irwin 10/4. The boat is missing a centerboard. It has a shoal keel with 2000 lbs of ballast so it sails ok, but doesnt go to winward that well and the wheel has to be attended to at all times as she tends to wander. I have the boat out of the water and was thinking about building a centerboard but I cant find any information about this boat. Anybody know anything about the centerboard for these boats? How heavy should it be? How is the cable routed? I can see where it used to exit in the companion way but other than the hole there is nothing related to the centerboard remaining. Someone in the boat yard also suggested building a small keel that could be bolted to the centerboard trunk for a more permanant solution. Has anybody done anything like this? I cant post links yet but i have pictures of the boat.
Thanks!

Paul
