Introduction, and question.

First let me start by saying HELLO to all.  I'm in the process of building a 24 ft. Tolman Skiff.  Purchased a  2012 115 E-TECH for power.  I am looking for part numbers for control Assemblies and elec. cable, Tack & System check gage.  Where would I find these.  I am nowhere close to an Evinrude dealer.  Thanks.  Nice Site.

Re: Introduction, and question.

A new E-TEC needs to be inspected, the oil system primed and initiated, and a computer report saved by an authorized dealer along with the owner signing the pre-delivery form to register the engine for warranty coverage. Dealers are not allowed to sell motors " in the box" due to these requirements.

For rigging instructions and part numbers, download the pre-delivery and installation manual from the Evinrude website? Click on SUPPORT, OPERATORS GUIDES, EVINRUDE, then choose the correct guide.

The parts list is under PARTS & accessories, SHOP ONLINE, PARTS, then OB ACCESSORIES

One other item, a 24' boat may be underpowered with a 115 HP outboard. Be sure to carefully select the correct prop that will allow the motor to rev up to the upper limit of the operating range.

Re: Introduction, and question.

Thanks Bill.  It took my simple brain some time to work through it but I got everything I needed except oil tank P/N but maybe we can figure that out..  The Tolman skiff will weight  around 2000# when completed.  Previous  builders have reported great success with the E-TECH 115 on there builds with 20 mph cruise and 3 mpg .Thanks again.
