Seaweed came with a quart of oil, some junk under the galley sink and that's it. The former owner did gift me a stove-top oven that I still use. Propane stove but no tank. She had dock lines and a totally inadequate anchor plus the ugliest curtains you can imagine.

But she had potential.
I've got manuals for everything I've bought in a plastic folder case. Sorted alphabetically so stuff is easy to locate.

One thing I do with the paperwork though is remove all pages that are not in English. I don't need Spanish, French, German, how to's for my stuff. Scissors eliminate the extraneous.

On the front of each "Book of Words" (aka instruction manual) I note the date and price paid, plus any warranty times I need to remember. Just in case!

And a friend found the shop manual for my new diesel, had it printed on heavy duty paper, spiral bound with a nice cover. That has a special place in my bookcase. It's spiffy!

For me, I prefer a hard copy versus electronic versions.

To answer the question: nothing came with Seaweed but potential.

Janice aboard Seaweed, living the good life afloat...

If my Bayliner came from the factory with any documentation, the previous (original) owner didn't pass it along. So I went to various websites and downloaded .pdf copies of every manual I could find, from Bayliner and MerCruiser as well as the manufacturers of various pieces of equipment aboard (water heater, battery charger, stove, head, etc.).

I printed out a copy of each and placed them in a 3-ring binder that I keep aboard, along with my registration and insurance documents.
