RE: [Mirage Owners Club] Re: Manual
- I had both, a brand new 236 and before that a 5.5. I don't remember getting an owner's manual with either and I was in close contact with Ken Fickett, visiting the factory several times. His was a small operation and probably couldn't afford the time and expense of creating an owner's manual.Tim-----Original Message-----Rich, Welcome aboard!

Looks like most eveyone is out sailing... (my boats still getting
worked on so I have the time to reply)!
No one seems to have a manual for the Mirage 5.5 or its sister
the 236. I was fortunate enough to receive some photocopied
sheets that seemed to be a "draft" of the manual from another
member several years ago.
Our Moderator, Baron Marsh, now has my copies and is
painstakingly transcribing them and fashioning a PDF manual
with his scarce free time. We're all anxiously awaiting the result
which he promises to post here.
In the meantime, there are a couple of scans of the "sales" sheet
posted in the photos section (along with a lot of modification
photos) AND this group is actually VERY good at answering
questions (when we aren't sailing) so just ask away!
