Runner if you can, go to a sailing club or marina and look for boats about the same size. I'm thinking most boats in the size range will have end boom sheeting.. (controls on the transom, blocks and line to the boom) I was sailing on a precision 16.5 last week. it had a boom that went in the track, the sail had a bolt rope the slid in the track too. the jib sail was just real simple and light lines to contol it. the blocks on the boom.. if they are on the side it may be a reefing setup. Good luck!
Do you have a rudder with tiller also? hope you get those pics soon.

ck this link for a free online book by Glen L It has all the info you will need to rig even build what you need. Rigging Small Sailboats - Title page

runner is on a distinguished road
The main halyard is gone and the lug that slides in the mast groove is gone also. The boom has a track, but the mast side of the sail has a top eye and that is it. There is a 3/8ths rope sewn into that side of the main. Canvas sails. It appears that the lug was sized so that it hit the sheave in the mast head before coming out of the top. The rope is simply draped over the sheave in the masthead. There is no provision for running the halyard back down the inside of the mast.
I will get pictures somehow tomorrow. Thanks for all the help!
I have 4 cleats around the edge of the cockpit. Two right behind the mast and two midway back in the cockpit. There is one additional cleat on the centerboard well and another on the back bottom of the mast. There are two line guides on the deck. There are no attachment points on the rear of the boat except for the rudder and the motor mount. Like I said, I will get pictures.

That rope sewn into the luft (leading edge of the mainsail ) is a bolt rope and that slides up the mast grove in lieu of the sail lugs

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.

let me try this again. GLEN L has an online book that shows you how to rig your boat.

We know you're innocent Dawg. It's those damn mods again.

I could keep up if I had my e-mail notification working.

After dark.

I did not get home until after dark. Here is a quick picture of the cockpit in the dark. Will get better when I have time, camera battery, and better light! The wooden floors are in place in that picture. If there is a proper term for them, please let me know!

More later! Have a good one!
