Posted - 05/01/2022 : 17:05:00 Has anyone seen the Capri 25 owners manual that Catalina Direct offers and is it any good? Part Number R6150 https://www.catalinadirect.com/shop-by-boat/capri-25/owners-manual-cp-25/ Is much different than the Capri 25 documents in the Manuals & Brochures section of this forum such as Owners Manual (1988) Sea Trials Document Selected Architectural Drawings Haarstick Sailmakers Tuning Guide 2001 Load Path Sails Notice - 2007 Capri 25 Update Ė Load Path Sails
Also, the owners manual for the Capri 25 titled Owners Manual 1988 is not really an owners manual.
I am aware that Catalina did not really create an owners manual for the Capri 25

Posted - 05/22/2022 : 15:48:25 Thank you both. I ended up ordering the binder from Catalina direct and it had some useful Catalina technical drawings of the running and standing rigging.
Posted - 05/01/2022 : 21:14:25 Hello Capri25, may I suggest that you call Catalina Direct and ask them to describe the book, perhaps read you or email you the table of contents or a page of the index. Then youíll have a much better idea whatís inside. You might also ask them how many pages are in the owners manual. If itís eight or 12, then itís not much of a manual, itís more of a brochure. If itís 30 or more pages, and it contains technical or dimensional information, thatís a keeper, but at $50 dollars, it better contain accurate info and valuable data.
Posted - 05/01/2022 : 17:40:40 Good catch, Capri 25!
The document labelled as an "Owner's Manual" in our "Manuals and Brochures" is not an owner's manual. It's the Constitution and Racing Rules of the Capri 25 One Design Class Association. It should be re-labelled as such.
The item labelled as a "Sea Trials Document" is apparently a copy of a magazine article reviewing the Capri 25. It should be re-labelled "boating magazine article reviewing Capri 25"
Those documents are worth preserving, but they should be correctly labelled.
I haven't seen the Catalina Direct "Owner's Manual" and can't tell you whether it's worth the price, but thanks for pointing out the inaccuracies in our materials. It's important that our information be accurate.
