Retractable dagger board stuck

I have an old mistral one design and yesterday the retractable daggerboard was dislodged from its seatings in the cassette. After trying to fix it myself I wound up with the daggerboard completely out of the cassette and board. Now I can't figure out which grooves the pivot points, one black, one blue and one red, arranged in a triangle, should fit into. Or how to get them back in.

If anybody could help it would seriously be appreciated.

Ask Kevin at Wind Power
He is one of the longest term Mistral dealers in business in the US.

If the arrangement is similar to my Mistral Equipe, and I think it is, the daggerboard goes in at an angle as though the leading edge is most of the way forward but not at 90 degrees to the deck, more like 60 or 70 or 50 degrees. When putting my daggerboard in or switching with the larger racing daggerboard I do a lot of fiddling to get it in or out. But not too much forcing. Sorry I can't give a precise answer.
