    I am restoring a binks FD, sail number KA175,named Kittiwake, Last known owner lived in Portland,Victoria,AU It has a fibreglass hull, timber deck.I only want to use it as a daysailer,casual sailing with wife.(if thats possible in an FD)I have looked everywhere including Binks them selves, for a rigging diagram.What rigging i do remember looks nothing like a modern FD.Binks sugest i just rig it to "work".What do you think?
