Gourmet Cruiser Owner's Manual / Guide

Hello, all. I just purchased a 2003 Halvorsen Gourmet Cruiser. As best I can tell, I'm the 4th owner. If there originally was any owner's manual or guide, it doesn't appear to have survived the ownership changes. Are you aware of any manuals or documents available online, or do you have a soft copy you could share?

On a related note, the manufacturer's plate is "HGC32007"...assume that means I have hull #7?

Thanks rsn! Previous owner was an airline pilot and took great care of the boat. Prior to awlgripping it, he added spray rails at the front based on the manufacturer's specs for later hulls #s. I don't have any real experience yet, but based on videos seems to make a big difference in head/quartering chop.

Codger2 is the one to contact. He owned one and is/was friends with Harvey Halvorsen who designed it.
