I've got an epoxy kit to fix the small crack in the side. In the meantime, I've also picked up a little 12 foot boat for my kids to bomb around on. I'll be testing out some techniques on that first,...

Does anyone have a pdf of the owners manual for the Gamefisher 7.5hp outboards? I've seen it referenced many times in google, but I haven't found a live torrent or download link yet. Thanks.

Thanks! The sails seem to be intact. The only issue I see is a few rust stains, but frankly, I'm not overly concerned about those. If nothing else, I'll stencil some black pirate skulls over them....
