1. There is really no reason to add ballast to the centerboard. You can keep a Lido balanced with your body. With a crew of two, hiking isn't even necessary until it really starts blowing, just scoot to windward and go. Don't wreck a really nicely balanced boat.
2. Schock sells all the rigging and parts you could want for even the old boats. You might also try Doublewave, which sells parts for and tunes Lidos.
