Mariner 40 airbox

Neighbour was having a look over my outboard (he's a 2-stroke mechanic) and first thing he pointed out was that the airbox was missing. The butterfly valves on the carbs are open to the world and the choke runs off a bit of string (it's my first outboard so didn't know this wasn't normal).

Anyone know some good places to look for the parts I need? It's roughly a 1990 model so I wouldn't be hopeful of finding something new but if anyone can suggest somewhere to try then it's much appreciated. Alternatively if someone has something useable they'd be willing to part with I'd be interested. I think this probably explains the problems I've been having with water on the plugs.
