Sail Accessory for 1924 Old Town Yankee

I'm trying to find the sail kit for my 16' Yankee canoe. I just purchased at auction, some lee boards in pretty rough shape and a mast with two spars, no tiller. Being a newbie I don't even know if what I bought will fit my canoe, but how often do you find the parts. Can anyone help me with this project? I will need to replicate one of the lee boards as it is badly dry rotted. The wood is light weight, could it be mahogany?
Not sure how often they become available. I had ordered reproduction lee board brackets and a full set of gungeons and pintles for the rudder. And of course no sooner did I buy the repros than I found a complete set of OT sailing parts at an antique show, not cheap but all there except the sail. So now I have to unload the new stuff.

We go antiquing a lot, and live in a water sport area, and this was the first set I have ever seen for sale. I had planned to make the lee board out of mahogany.
