    Hi bought this Apollo and was looking to locate a manual and details. I found some manufacturing history and background but no luck on the manual and no information on the weight and specs. Would love help from the community.

    Thanks for any help you can provide

    Welcome to the Forum Leonard.

    Your Apollo looks very fine - she certainly does not look like she is almost 50 years old!
    I cannot offer any additional information re the Apollo class, but I hope that another member of this Forum will be able to.

    Can you give us the additional information that you have found so far?

    Many boat makers in the 70s experimented with balsa core. And many of those experiments failed when cores got wet through ingress of various sources and rotted. Hopefully, the Apollo is solid glass. It sure looks nice.
