Taking it all apart

Having just purchased an old lark I am wondering if there is such a thing as a "manual" on how to take it apart (and put it back together again), or instructions on how to change the rig from centre to transome. The other thing I could do with some advice on is getting my hands on a roadbase for the combi trailer it came with.

Hi there its very simple to chasnge the main control sheet from centre to aft, however i would suggest you try centre main as it is alot better.

All you have to do is "unrig" the centre main blocks/fittings, remove the blocks/fittings. Then attach a long slider on the top of the transom and rig up your blocks, jobs a good one.

As for a manual, a lark is not a complicated boat, my advice is you rig your control lines where you want, use what ever system you want. Just keep it nice, basic and neat.
