Islander 33 manual

I have been looking for an Islander 33 user manual other than that displayed in the Islander Sailboat site. I am especially interested in how the boom was originally rigged. The boom now, on the Rosey Mae, is a 14' 8" roller type, which may not be original equipment. This boom was apparently main sheeted from the aft end of the boom down to a traveler on the transom, but it is unclear how, as all the parts may not be there. Most of the pictures of Islanders I see have the boom main sheeted at a mid-boom traveler. Any help, suggestions or pictures are appreciated as is any advice. Jerry

Jerry,
Probably too late a reply for you to use but.....
I have a 1967 Islander 33 flushdeck and the boom you describe is what I have as well. It roller furls from a crank on the gooseneck and the mainsheet is on the rear of the cockpit right below the end of the very long boom. I've installed reefing kringles and lazy jacks as I found the roller furl boom to be awkward to use.

As far as I know, the roller boom with aft sheeting was stock. I still use the original blocks for the main and jib sheets as well. Love the boat! Sorry, but 'Summerspiel' didn't come with a manual for me either.
