Spindrift 43

I'm new to this forum. I'm seeking information on the Formosa Spindrift 43 1981. I have not been able to find much info on this sailboat. Looking for brochures or manuals. Any help or guidance would be appreciated.

Re: Spindrift 43

Heavy laid hull, typical early Chinese rough/crude spots in construction. Teak decks would be a major concern as well as tanks for me. Not sure if they built some without teak decks. I like the boat though. Very nice interiors. I'm not sure but I think these had a deck mold fiberglass deck/cabin as opposed to earlier Chinese built boats like the Formosa's etc. That's a plus. If it has the Chinese bronze tapered seacocks that's a plus also, they seem to last forever.
Here's an example with many pics:
