For all those nervouse about doing it, don't sweat it. It is a very easy task. If you are not afraid to take something apart and can remember where you set screws and bolts, this is a simple task. I looked up a few bits of info online for help, and really the two best bits I added the links to. I actually had a spare carb that I was given when I bought the boat, so we just swapped the carbs out. Let me tell you, the difference is phenomenal in just the driveway tests. It runs so much smoother and starts so much easier. If you can change oil or are not scared to swap out an air intake on a car or maybe put together a wood cabinet from a store, then you can do the rebuild, it is very easy.
My only suggestion is to remove the vaccum and the choke and soak the entire thing in a a bucket of gasoline overnight. Have a can of carb cleaner and compressed air can to blow all the channels clear and ports clear. It is really simple, I have never done it before and can confidently say it seems a lot more intimidating than it really is.

Just a quick side note to this, I actually was able to order the Holley 703-47 marine kit from my local autozone. It was just under $29 and free shipping. Ordered it late Monday and it was in the store by lunch on Wednesday.
