Four Winds II- looking for blade arm set and complete manual

I own a Fourwinds II that has been a tireless contributor to our charging strategy for years. I had just released it for an afternoon charge last week and was sitting listening to it quietly crank up the juice, blessing it and rueing the day that I have to repair it, when a friend sailed up in dinghy for a visit and abruptly stopped the blades with their sprit. The blades are fine but the stainless arms that connect the blades to the hub are bent (and the sprit has a chunk missing). I am hoping that I can either replace them with actual Four Winds II parts or have another set machined locally. I hope to connect with people who've taken the hub of one of these genny's apart and may have some thoughts about truing the hub and blade assembly once it's rebuilt.
I am also hoping to locate the most recent Owner's Manual that was most likely released at around the same time that the company went under.

I now have an electronic copy of the Fourwinds Manual - 70 pages and 10Mb. If you would like a copy just drop me an email and I will send you one. My email is: wmlunn1@gmail.com

Thanks. Bill
