westerly centaur owner's manual?

hello
I recently purchased a 1977 westerly centaur 26. Where can I get an owner's manual for the boat? The internet has not yet proven very helpful.
Thanks

Did you try contacting the Westerly Owner's Association?

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

The Westerly owner's group is more active here Westerly-Owners : Westerly Owners Group
I don't think there is a specific manual - my Westerly never had one. But specific questions may be answered at this link (joining is a good idea) or here.

Not the fastest out there but solid comfortable boats. I owned a Westerly 25 in 1971 and wished I had never sold it. The Centaur is roomier. Below is a Centaur followed by a Westerly 25.
