I find it hard to beleive that any one would build boat without one. Also if anyone has a owners manual on this boat and could find it in there heart to let me know , I would be more than happy to pay for all copying /mailing cost. a little on me ------I have been sailing since I was 12 --2 sunfish-- 2 hobie 14 -- 3 hobie 16-- I built 27 ft. sloop and sailed out of ST. joe mi. for 6 years . crewed on a 30ft out of same harbor, retired Navy chief 21 years, well folks, I hope to hear anything about this boat Seabee
I purchased a 1986 Watkins 29 in June. Had an awesome summer with her. She is sitting on the hard for the winter. I have a 2GM20 manual... but no boat manual. If you come across a "boat manual" please let me know. Love to get my hands on one.
I see you got the fuel issue resolved. She sips fuel. I used 7 Gallons all summer.
