New member Nautica rib jet boat manual/questions
Good morning fellow boaters, I am a new member to this site & my name is Mick Hodapp. I am retired from Las Vegas,Nv & have been living in Puerto Vallarta. Mx for the last 8 years with my first & last mate,Kathy, & our 25 ft McGregor sailboat, ' Nina'. We are excited to find this forum because we recently purchased a neglected 2001 Nautica International 10 ft riibjet with the 2 stroke,80 hp Yamaha 701 motor which hopefully will be used as a tender for 'Nina' & a boat for Kathy to troll around here in Banderas Bay. I've been able get her up & running reliably but My main concerns are that I know very little about jet boats,it didn't come with a users manual (although i was able to download a manual for the motor ). This type of boat is very rare here in Mexico, & Nautica went out of business in 2008 , so I'm hoping that someone on this forum might be able to send me a copy of one that i could download, or jnfo on how to go about getting one as I have several questions about the boat itself. I would consider it a Godsend & would be more than happy to pay whatever a fair price would be. I think that the 9,11 & 12 foot manuals would also work.
Thanks for reading this & I am am looking forward to hearing back from any or all of you. Please feel free to send me a private email if you so desire. If pics would help I can try to post a couple.
