Bristol 29.9 masthead rigging -- photo??

Hi -- does anyone have a photo of mast head rigging configuration of Bristol 29.9 ?? I need to do several things up there (re-run main and spin halyard, and replace anchor light with new fixture...) and would appreciate getting familiar with it before i go up for the first time. Any photos or spec sheets/drawings of how the halyards are run, where shivs are, and anchor light attachment would be much appreciated.

Here is the only pic I could find of mine. External halyards, so the halyards run up the mast into the masthead and down the other side of the mast.

left side of the pic is aft.
  • blue and red fleck is the topping lift.
  • red fleck on port side, entering aft of the masthead is the jib halyard.
  • red fleck on starboard side, exiting aft of the masthead is the main halyard.
  • the white on the pulley, starboard side at the front of the masthead, is the spin halyard
  • the small pulley, starboard side, middle of the masthead is a flag halyard.

Just an aside - if you give yourself a little more slack on the cabling, you can give it a "dip"; making it drop below the hole in the mast and then go up into the mast. This lets rainwater drip off the cable outside of the mast, instead of directing it inside the mast and down into the boat.
