New (to us) Dufour owners

Hello All
We're based in Ontario, Canada and have just bought a 1984 Dufour 39. We had a lovely CS27 but got a bad case of 12 footitis. We're happy with the Dufour but need to get a cradle for the winter. Does anybody know anything about dimensions of an appropriate cradle or, know where to get my hands on a lines plan of an 80's vintage Dufour 39?
Looking forward to meeting some like-minded people.

12 footitis, now that you are at 39' don't think you are over it as I started at 39' and have moved up once and still have footitis issues

Don't blow air up my rear, be useful and blow it at the sails!

I was going to recommend sailboatdata, but they don't have line drawings.

DUFOUR F39 sailboat specifications and details on

I like the 80's Dufours, and looked at one that was nice, in the 34 foot range. Does yours have a red sink in the head? I don't understand the french love of red sinks but the Beneteau of the same vintage have them as well.

And to add:
