    Capri 14.2 Mod 1 1986 Manual Attached

    1987 manufacturer I'm thinking it was Catalina. If you research some of the past post, searching through the forum topics, you will find a wealth of knowledge including the history of the Capri line. Be prepared to spend some time though as reading these can be addictive :-)

    Serial number Rayhas, I dont know if this is correct or not but it just so happens that the last two digits of the serial number stamped into the outside upper right corner of my transom happens to also be the year it was made (86). There may be something there, I'm not sure.

    gelcoat cracking

    Thanks for the info Solarfry. Wow if that works what an easy fix. I imagine that with paint on gelcoat, the exterior maintenance upkeep might be a little more work ?? How did you prep the nonskid surface for painting??
