    Default 1988 Bayliner manual

    We just purchased a 1988 Bayliner boat. It has no manual and we have never operated a boat before, so need to purchase a operation manual for it. Can you help us with this problem?

    Welcome to iboats!

    Contact Bayliner customer service at (360) 435-8957; have your HIN (hull identification number) handy. They will e-mail you a .pdf scan of the owner's manual.

    However, you won't get all that much information in the manual. I strongly recommend you take a boating safety course from the Coast Guard Auxiliary, US Power Squadron, or your state (assuming you are in the USA).

    Hi Jay -

    Start here friend - http://boatsafe.com

    Also get a couple orange construction cones and a large parking lot and practice getting that boat backed into the uprights!

    Enjoy
