It appears you have a bit of an orphan. Google
is your friend in this case.
I found a little history
American Mariner Industries
There also seems to be a lot of people out there looking for manuals
. I don't understand this need to be honest. What would the purpose of the manual be?
There is at least one person trying to drum up interest for an owners group.
On our boat I was able to search the internet
and got manuals
and parts books
(free) for all the systems including:
, boom and rodkicker manual
In addition I found a parts
supplier for a few of the decor items for the boat as well.
You have to become a bit of an internet
sleuth with older boats.
I'll say again that one of the major decision elements in the next buy will be a sizeable, active owners group. It is great when you have a lot of people that have been there ahead of you.
