    Hi All

    Very happy to be aboard this forum and now looking forward to contributing and finding out more about sailing. In particular is there anybody reading this who knows where I can get a copy of a manual for a Trapper 400? I did a search here and even checked the dedicated Trapper website but no luck so far!

    Thanks in advance for all replies.

    Yes it's the same boat - just checked, my boat's sail is K6042 in bright red, so that means I've bought a celebrity? Such a lovely boat and there's a commerative plaque inside that refers to the boat being in the Three Peaks Race a few years ago also. I'm even more proud of the boat...

    Photobucket will no longer allow the scanned copies of my Trapper 400 catalogue to be displayed, so I shall re-post them as simple attachments now.

    19 - Fiberform 2450 Bermuda 001.jpg Hello Captain Backstrap,
    I have been meaning to re-post my Fiberform catalogue as well after finding that Photobucket are now demanding a subscription of US$ 500 per year for allowing me to use their services - no thanks.
    I shall go and do that now - in the meantime here is (I hope) a copy of the page re your 2450.
