    My wife and I just bought a 1982 381 Chris Craft Catalina and we are trying to find an owners manual. We don't know anything about this craft and need help. We are living aboard it in St. Petersburg Florida. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Hi Daniel, Welcome to YachtForums! I just did a google search for "chris craft 381 owners manual". A Chris Craft Catalina Club owners site popped up with a posting of a link to a pdf of the manual for a 1989 model 381. Should be close enough to yours, or dig deeper at that site for help. In my experience owning a similar vintage Chris, the owners manual was not much help.

    Thanks for the reply. I did find a Pdf for the manual and you are right, not a lot of help. Sorry for the lateness of my reply. I started working nights and don't get on my computer much.

    No worries. If you have any specific questions about your 381 Chris, go ahead and ask here. Someone will probably know the answer.

    Would anyone know where I can find an Electrical 120V diagram for the Chris Craft 381 Catalina, 1986? Thx

    1982 Catalina 381, I feel some softness in my foredeck, aft of the anchor sprit. Do I have balsa core in that section or?.
