    Default Questions about new boat

    Just bought a new hewes craft river runner that needs some work on the top. What's the best place in or around anchorage to get some work done.

    This is also the first outboard jet I've owned. Actually the first boat period. Its a 90 Johnson, what do I need to know about it?

    I also got a 40 hp 1976 evinrude outboard with the boat. It needs the recoiling pull start and it had the shaft and gears removed from the throttle that runs through the handle. Can anyone recommend a place to get used outboard parts.

    Thanks,
    hntr

    Does it need work on the top end of the motor or on the canvas top? If it's the canvas, then you might want to call Alaska Tent and Tarp. They should be able to point you in the right direction if they can't do it.

    Didn't Spenard Upholstery close?

    Go to any boat shop and pick up a book about jets. It is usally in the book rack. (I must be getting old I can't remember the title and I saw it in Burkshore's yesterday). It has lots of good information and do's and don'ts!
