What spares should I carry with my Hunter in the car and on the boat? How many and what kind of lines should I have on board? (It came with some, I need to inventory it) Which life vest are most economical to buy and still comfortable? I was looking at kayak type vests. In NJ I believe I can use just an orange flag instead of flares? Can anyone comment on this? Keep in mind I will be 100% on water that will be back bays around Ocean City to Somers Point NJ, lots of summer traffic. I now have a Nissan 2.5 outboard 2 cycle (older). I got cheap and the guys says it cuts out. Not sure really if there is a problem, he put a new carb on it. I found the screw turned all the way in on the carb (slide type carb not butterfly). The oil seems to have settled some in the tank. First order of business is fresh new gas and high quality synthetic oil and a plug. My brother is pretty handy with engines of any sort. The body and prop do not look like they have much use. I will be setting up a test stand in a can to see what happens. I have put the brackets back on the boat. On any warm days coming up I plan on practicing stepping the mast and putting things together.
