I have a 1975 15' Chaparral Tri-hull which was the first boat Chaparral build, beginning in the 6o's. The owner's manuals on your site start in 1980?

Loco: Welcome to the forum. Whatever you got with the boat and whatever is posted on the forum under manuals is all the info you will see in print.

For specific questions about your boat, either post a question on the forum or call Chaparral service.

I think that Webbie found the old manuals, but they were written in an unknown language.

I believe that you will need the Rosetta Stone to translate those manuals.... :P

Hi I was wanting Specs for my Signature 27 (1990) Model. The owners manual that is on the web is not what Iwant. This is pretty basic stuff. I want to have a full mechanical,electrical and plumbing service manual.We live in Invercargill NZ where there is not an agency for chaparral and our boat is the only here!

Thank you for your atention to this request.

Cheers

Sawdust: For any year boat, there are no FULL manuals, especially electrical even for the later models Chaparrals. The manuals touch upon the basics but none are very complete and only guide you through basic operation of the boat. And don't ask Chaparral (here in the US), it will be a waste of a long distance call for you.

Best you can do is to ask specific quesitons here on the forum or buy one of the Cylmer (spelling?) manuals specific for your power setup. Most of those manuals can be found on Amazon.com under boat maintainance.

Good luck with your Chappie, welcome to the forum, and don't be bashful asking questions.

I echo everything Hank saws above. Welcome!

And we would all like to see pictures of your boat! Look at this thread to learn how to post pics. We look forward to seeing them.

Come back early and often!
