Looking for Resources re: Minifish

I've been working on an old Minifish, circa 1983, that was found at a garage sale a few years ago, with a lot of missing parts. We've managed to obtain or fabricate most of what we need, but I can't for the life of me find any documentation on how to rig this little boat. The only fittings I have for the main sheet are the two little blocks on the boom.

My searches at the library and online have been fruitless, so I was hoping someone from this community could point me in the right direction, or even just tell me outright how to get this thing into working order.

CalebD will become famous soon enough
The Minifish is essentially a small Sunfish when it comes to the rigging. There is a traveler line that goes over the tiller with a rolling block on it where one end of the main sheet originates. It then goes through both blocks on the boom and down to a deck mounted block after which it is nice to have a cam cleat mounted on deck for securing the sheet.
Check this link (obtained by searching 'Sunfish sailboat') Sunfish Sailboat Mast, Boom, Daggerboard & Bailer Parts
There is also a yahoo group for the sunfish sailboat with lots of info.
Good luck
