Redwing Running Rigging

Hello,
I have a 30' 1970 C&C Redwing which I purchase 2 years ago. The running rigging is a bit of a mess as nothing much appears to have been done with it over the years. I'd like to make some enhancements to it (e.g. get reefing, main halyard, and possibly some other sail controls to the cockpit) while I bring it back up to speed. I'd like to rig it for cruising with my wife and myself and, ultimately, single handing. If anyone can point me to some resources for ideas on how to best redesign (books, examples, articles, anything) I'd greatly appreciate it ... I'd like to avoid trial and error as much as possible.
Thanks!

DV,

I have all my running rigging led back to the cockpit on my Redwing. If you are still contemplating this project I can send you some pictures via email, or post some in this thread.

I have a 1970, #137, down here on the south shore of Long Island, New York.

The boat has a set of four Spinlocks on each side of the cabin, just forward of the cabin house winch. I think it goes like this: port side has: cunningham, outhaul, main halyard, and spinn halyard; and the starboard side has the two reef lines, a jib halyard, and the topping lift for the spinnaker pole. There's a system of blocks and padeyes(?) that help the lines run true.

You can check out more about my Redwing here: The C&C Redwing

hope to chat with you more about our great boats!
Jarrett
