Google Hates the Glastron Alpha 159

My son and I purchased a hull requiring much repair. It has no rigging, no tiller, no rudder, no daggerboard. He is 15 and this is his coming of age project. Sadly, neither of us can find anything online about specs or dimensions for the hardware or accessories. Help? It doesn't make it easier that I'm a novice, too, so any advice is appreciated. BTW...Don Casey is my hero!

Re: Google Hates the Glastron Alpha 159

Denver Sailors, I recently purchased a 1970 Alpha for use as a secondary dinghy on our upcoming cruising life. Mine came with the original manual, if you can believe that! Want a copy? I don't know much about her yet as I haven't even had her on the water, but mine is complete and ready for the water if you need pics of anything.
