5.8m humber destroyer 1995 manual wanted

Hi all,
I am new to this forum so apologies if this is listed elsewhere.
I have just bought a 5.8m humber destroyer 1995 and wondered if anyone knows where I can get a user/owners manual for it?
Thanks all

Here's a compact version of the "Manuals" of that era, usually transmitted by word of mouth by a dive club cox.

Pump up firm, starting at the bow.
check for leaks,
add petrol and oil as required,
place in water.

On return, if there are no expansion valves reduce the pressure in at least the two rear tubes to allow for thermal expansion.

Always bring the pump with you.

Starting at the bow? I always start at the stern, then work my way forwards on either side, inflating the bow last. I was told a long time ago it should mean there's less chance of blowing a baffle in a stuff. I can see the logic behind it.
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?
