Anyone have a copy of the F21 lines pdf?

Once upon a time http://www.freedom21.info would link you to a Freedom 21 sailboat information site owned by Max Lent. Now it seems to be owned by a political movement.

I need to replace some lines on my Freedom 21 but the link to the f21lines.pdf has been broken. Does anyone in this group have a copy of the pdf in question or, barring that, have a list of all the running rigging lengths and diameters?

I just got back from the marina. I did a final search of the boat for the 5 missing lines. I didn't find them on the boat but I did find them in the covered bed of my pickup truck. :lol:

While searching the boat I came across the original owner's hard copies of commissioning instructions. In the file were two sheets of Xerox paper with descriptions of the running rigging. :P
