An owners manual for a Taiwanese Tub is an extinct animal.

Greetings,
Welcome aboard! We had a 1979 Marine Trader at one point and the only "documentation" we had was a wiring diagram in Chinese. Not sure whether it was Mandarin or Cantonese but we were the fourth or fifth owners and ANY resemblance to the original wiring was coincidence at that point. I never bothered to have it translated BUT I did ask a friend what the labels were on a sink drain and a faucet bib. "Thousands of mountains" and "Happy Pearl electric company"...

Oh yeah... Got a wiring diagram in Kanji but it was OBE'd by the enhancements made by the other 12 previous owners of the boat.

You don't need to go to Taiwan to get confusing wiring diagrams.
I had a Sterling truck (new), the diagram in the owner's manual
did not match the truck, wires not even in the truck.
The diagram pasted on the inside of the panel cover was the same.
Go over to the dealer's shop, enter the serial number of the truck to call
up the build specs, same results.
Go figure!

Oh, no longer have that unit.

No an extinct thing did exist at one time.

There are no TT manuals as few actually know who really built any TT boat.

A hull would be plopped as a wedding present , and the success of the build was up to the groom.

If the boat sold and was reordered , another TT builder in business.
