    I recently received a Fiberform boat but I am unable to find any info on it. It’s 28 feet(or so I’m told) it has Fiberform on the side. I’ve included some pics. If you need more, let me know.

    This page is from a catalogue that I have from 1977 - the 2800 model does look rather like your boat.

    You guys are awesome. Will, mine doesn’t have the plank on the front. Sorry, I’m not sure of the technical terms.
    Baja, it does look a lot like mine. I’ll know more when I go to clean it up

    It’s a 1977 Fiberform cruiser, according to the HIN. Does anyone know where I can get info on how the electrical is suppose to be set up

    Boat electrics, especially from that era, are generic and basic. Plus it changed frequently. Fiberform Probably had little info on it to begin with.

    You'll need to rewire just about everything, and new systems will be much different and better than what's in there now.

    So even an exact wiring diagram would be of little help.
