    Is the Westsail 28 Manual copyrighted?

    I've scanned mine into a complete PDF file and was going to make it available for download on my website but didn't want to violate any copyright laws.

    I'll make it available at my website, http://www.westsail28.net once I know I won't go to jail or become an outcast among the Westsail Community...:)

    I can't advise you either but maybe some online research could answer your question.

    Do you refer to the "Build Manual" or to the "Owners Manual"? Either way, I have never seen a copyright notice posted on either of these documents. Others have scanned and distributed them, as well as the counterparts manuals for the 32. They are available to the membership for download and, to my knowledge, nobody has ever been sued, scorned, or incarcerated.  I think you're on safe ground.

    I also have a printed copy of the W28 factory constructon manual, and one scanned into a PDF file and available on a CD.  The Westsail owners manual (the users manual) is also on the same CD.
