Any 1977-82 Ensenada/Balboa 20 manuals available?

I'm trying to locate a comprehensive owner's manual for my 1977 RK-21, which is basically an Ensenada/Balboa 20, reportedly. Does anyone have a manual which can be copied? I have no idea how the rigging was laid out, and only a few interior pictures to go by (my interior needs gutting/replacement). Any help would be appreciated! phil

Don't despair if no manual turns up. I suspect that owner's manuals for boats, especially of that vintage, weren't all that comprehensive. I really only have the manual for our 87 Pearson to go by, but it is a typed-page affair with very little info that couldn't be found some other way. I would suggest looking for a user group or pictures from other users.
