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.

There is also a yahoo group for the sunfish sailboat with lots of info.

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.
