2) No boom.

3) No sails.

I know where to get sails, and most of the other stuff is just maintenance, and clean up.

Does anybody know where to find rudders and booms, or specs for a Mirage 236?
As I was recently informed by Ken Fickett, owner and founder, that Mirage Manufacturing Co. (Gainsville FL) is still in business. (no longer building sailboats). No idea if they have any information that would be helpful to you. But it's worth a shot.
This system is not allowing me to post any links. But you should be able to find it with a quick search.

Best of luck.
