Hi Marcus,

Welcome.

Sounds like you are where we were a couple of years ago when we bought our Sailer 23.

We are not experts by any means but feel free to email / post any questions.

Proabably, the one thing that we learned is that there is no better way to learn things about the boat than to crawl around and make copious notes.

For things like wiring, gas pipes, etc. it is worth taking off any easily accessible panels and having a look. I was very reluctant to do anything like this when we started but we soon realised that anything that screws on should screw back again. If they don't, (because of rusted screws or damaged fittings), it is worth finding out and fixing things in the comfort of the marina.

If you are a luddite about deisel engines like me, one tip that I would suggest is that you get a laptop and a USB connected web cam and poke it around your engine while reording everything that you see. You then have a 'baseline' of what your engine looks like when everything is working.

You can't have too many digitial photographs of every bit of the boat, in fact.

In short, if you explore the boat, work out where everything is and what it is for, then you won't really need any paperwork. Chances are that your boat has been modified over the years and is unique anyway.

Ariel, our Sailer 23 is in Hartlepool if you are ever sailing by.

Hope you have lots of fun with your new boat.

Rav.
