Hi, does anyone have details on a Caribbean Caper from 1974? For example, weight, outboard capacity, formal dimensions, a brochure or similar to post here? Also does anyone know whether it has a timber structure below the glassed floor or a fibreglass mould (and no timber) like  Steber boats have from that era? Last query: where would I likely find the boat code if it has one?
Thanks!

Hi Bobby,
Welcome to The Board. Winter is traditionally quiet on this Forum. I will make contact with our member who will be able to provide the information you are seeking. Sit tight.

I recall the Caper was 14' 3" in length.

You've got a good memory Mercman, 14' 3" it is. Beam is 74". Weight 575 lb. HP range 40-115. Built from 1971-83.
Oh yes it has timber stringers, plywood floor, and plywood transom, the best of quality back then by International Marine.

Thank you Mercman and Mark! Great information. And look what I received today as well from Caribbean:
I thought I post it so all can view.

And this is mine. Found it in a farmer's shed recently. Needs a bit of work before it looks like in the brochure...
Thanks again guys!
