I just bought an old 15.5' MKIII with a 40hp suzuki on the back. The boat is in really good shape for being 34 years old (1985), some small repairs on the bottom - none in the tubes.
I am trying to find a spot close to anchorage to run the boat this afternoon to see how it handles and runs before trying an overnight trip into PWS next weekend...what lakes/ponds is it legal on?
I am also trying to find out any information on the boat - folding directions, maintenance information (rubber care, valve care, etc.) and any information on the old 1986 40hp Susuki that is on it.
Next spring I am thinking of re-powering it with a 50hp honda jet - anybody try to run a zodiak with a jet?
I will do some forum searches to see what I can come up with too.
