Rigging Help - sabot style

I just picked up a sailboat like a sabot that really doesn't have any rigging. I was wondering what kind of block/pulley/clutch I need in the center mounted by the dagger board to control my main line. I went on westmarine and there are like 400 blocks, I have no idea. Any help/guidance would be appreciated. Also, what pulley should I get for the traveler in the rear? Thanks a ton!

If by "like a Sabot" you mean a Naples Sabot, then there has to be a web site for them, you could check there for used gear.

By no "rigging" do you mean no mast and boom, or just no sheet and blocks?

If the latter, you just need a fitting on the end of the boom to tie or shackle the mainsheet to, then a double block (two small blocks at 90 degrees to each other, traveler goes thru one, sheet thru the other). Then a block at end of boom, another directly over the center piece, and a block (either with or without a cam cleat) with a swivel, down on the center piece. Small blocks on a small pram are fine, Harkens are among the best.

Photos of what you have, or don't have, would help. Otherwise, the above is my best guess..

I have a mast, boom, and sail. I have two pulleys on the boom, one towards the center, and one towards the back. the rope goes through the back one, then gets tied off. I assume i should tie that to a traveler block, down to a line crossing the stern that is not currently there. I have a rudder and dagger board. In essence, im missing the block by the dagger board, and the traveling line, and the traveling block. haha, i dont even know what a clam cleat is, i need to do some reading online now that you are throwing some terms at me. i would say this is a cross between a sabot and a el toro. or something similar. thanks.

Sabot Rig

If the sail has a sock that fits over the mast it's a Sabot. The traveller line is fixed to an eye strap on one side of the transom, then goes through an eyestrap on the other side and leads forward a foot or two to a cleat for adjustment, preferably a clam cleat. A small block tied to the mainsheet rides on the traveller line, then the mainsheet runs forward on the boom to a position about above the daggerboard. To minimize capsizing, I don't recommend cleating off the mainsheet even to a cam cleat. Good luck. It's a great little training boat.
