Question Kenner Skipjack Owner

Hello all!
Looking for anyone who currently owns a Kenner 35 Skipjack. I have recently aquired a 1967 model from a gentleman that had some unusual ideas of how to best set up a boat. As an example, his first action as a boat owner was to remove the centerboard and trunk - it rattled. Then he decided that the flush deck aft was a waste of space, so he built a 6' x 8' x 6', 3/4 inch plywood cabin and removed the deck under it (pictures here) . His final injury, er, modification to the boat was to rig hydraulic steering by welding a flat tang to the leading edge of the rudder and cutting a 1" x 28" slot in the transom for it to travel in. He then connected the hydraulic cylinder to the tang, went hard port, hard starboard a few times, when predictably enough, the tang snapped off the rudder.

What I am hoping to find is somone that could supply me with diagrams and/or pictures of the centerboard, trunk and tackle design, the original steering gear design, and the original deck layout. Any help would be most appreciated!

Thanks
Matt

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

My bad! Not sure how I managed to double-post. Must have had something to do with the lateness of the hour, inexperience with the forum, and/or the smallness of my brain. Most likely the latter of the three... If there is a moderator around, feel free to kill this thread!
