All,

Bobby Ward (username : Grainne) and I are very happy to announce that the factory has just given us approval to start sharing electronic versions of Owner's Manuals via IP Home Port.  Many of you have asked about this over the years so we're excited that we finally have the go-ahead to make it happen.  Thank you, Mr. Bolin!

This approval is limited to boats that are NOT currently in production - owners with current model boats should continue to contact Island Packet's Customer Service department at 1 800 828 5678 to request a replacement manual.

Note that a request for a replacement Owner's Manual has historically been a good indicator to the factory that there's been a change in ownership for a particular boat.  This gave them an important opportunity to review and update their records as needed.  With the on-line availability of manuals this will no longer be an effective strategy, so the factory asks that any new owners of pre-owned IPs please contact Customer Service at 1 800 828 5678 (if they have not already done so) to ensure that the ownership records for their boat are up to date.

Our collection of Owner's Manuals will be stored in a dedicated section of the 'File Downloads' page (LINK).  I've already posted two files there, specifically PDF versions of the IP350 and IP380 manuals, just to get things started.  The IP350 manual is from Bobby while the IP380 manual was generously shared by Todd Peterson (Pete1Tod).

I know that there are any number of other electronic manuals in circulation (IP owners tend to be resourceful!) so if you have an electronic version of an Owner's Manual that isn't already in our collection please consider sending it via e-mail to webmaster@iphomeport.com.  Be sure to include your IP Home Port username so that your fellow owners can recognize your contribution ...

Here are some important notes about this initiative :

1) We're only looking for PDF versions of the manuals at this time, preferably with OCR completed and the linked Table Of Contents generated.  The image-only PDF versions are a great start but they don't allow users to perform key word searches and also tend to be rather inefficient in terms of file size.  That said, if you have a good quality image-only version of the Owner's Manual for a model that isn't already in the collection please contact us as we may be able to help with the additional processing.

2) We're only looking for 'factory stock' versions of the manuals due to the potential for confusion due to any user edits or other customizations.

3) The files will be optimized as needed in order to reduce size and improve download speed.

4) The files will be re-named as needed in order to simplify coding and maintenance for the File Downloads page.

5) We need source control for these files in case there are any issues regarding their contents or functionality, so each will be electronically marked with both copyright information for Island Packet Yachts as well as a version date for the download from IP Home Port.

If you have any questions or comments please send a PM to either Stuart W or Grainne ...

Thanks in advance for helping to build this important new resource!

This is great and is what sets IPs apart from almost any other make. Thanks for making this available.

OK, I've now found a source for the IP320 and IP420 manuals (albeit in need of some additional processing to generate the text-based PDF). 

Does anyone else have an electronic version of their Owner's Manual that they'd like to share?

I will get my IP31 manual off the boat and send it along. Boat is still at the house, haul out in 2 weeks and it will take me some time to get it into a pdf format, but it will eventually get to you.

Hi Bill,

I received your scanned PDF version of the IP31 Owner's Manual - many thanks.  I ran it through the OCR process, built the Table Of Contents to simplify navigation, and optimized the file for downloading - only 1.3 MB for the entire manual including the Technical Drawings in the Appendix. Not too bad at all ...

This new manual is now available on the File Downloads page (LINK). Everyone that downloads it should be sure that View / Table Of Contents is enabled in their PDF reading software so that they can take advantage of that helpful feature.

Thanks again!

The IP320 Owner's Manual is now available on the File Downloads page here on IP Home Port (LINK).  This file has been through the OCR process to enable text searching.  It is also optimized for web downloads and is only 2.6 MB in size.  As always, be sure that View / Table Of Contents is enabled in your PDF reading software to simplify document navigation.

I am currently working on the scanning and conversion of the IP420 Owner's Manual.  I've also found a potential source for the IP38, so we're starting to gain some traction on this project.  Is there anyone else that has an electronic version of their manual that they would like to contribute?  Or maybe a clean paper copy of their manual that they could loan me for a few days now that the sailing season is almost over here in the northern part of the world?

Thanks in advance!

Stuart:

Besides the 32 manual that I promised I also have access to one for a 35 - want that as well?

I can get the 37 manual scanned into PDF. Will take a few weeks if that's okay.

Even the diagrams/ drawings came out with the correct orentation.  UR the 1.0
Stuart.

Admiral Peggy's LaserJet was glowing red by the last page but WTH.   Cbreeze has a clean copy to go with that tired old marked up/ duct taped original. :D

 

Much Thanks to IP, Stuart, and Bobby,

Starting With a Clean Slate Frank
