Question Reviving a Neptune Trolling Motor

I have uncovered a Neptune, Mighty Mite, model#WC1, Serial# B676RK

I am lookling to buy one off of Ebay to use as future parts for the one I have uncovered in my Father-in -Laws garage. Anyone have any info or know where I can find a manual for it? I got the old motor to crank this morning. I plan on sticking it on the back of this Nissan blow up raft, it is about 8' long. I picked up the boat at a yardsale for $50, it is in very good condition.

Look's like something I could even put a sail on. I saw a similar sized blow up raft yesterday that came with a sail. Guy had it on the beach yesterday. It was an interesting site to say the least. It has me scratching my head thinking I could dothe same thing with my dingy. Do they sell kits for something like that?

I figure since I can fit both the boat and the motor in the trunk of my wifes compact pontiac G5 it is just the perfect vehical to get back and forth to mooring.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
