Best of luck and let us know how things turn out!
ps. You're not likely to find a "manual" of the kind I think you are imagining.

Aw, come on guys. This looks pretty straight forward:
Good luck, though! Should be tons o' fun!
You should do yourselves a favor and read some books or find someone to show you the ropes (which by the way are lines, or more specifically, sheets, halyards, etc. on a sailboat.) As soon as you put it on a boat, it gets a different name. The names aren't important. Knowing what they do, however, is vital.

Vanguard 470 Main Sail/boon pulley system
my friend and i just pull a vanguard 470 that has been sitting beind his house for about 10-15 years. his parents had a ll the sails and ropes stored. the only problem now is that we can;t figure out the riggings for the pulley system that operate the boon(spelling?) to the main sail. does anyone have a manual for the boat or photo of the rigging?
