well if you couldn't afford (but you were able to) - this would have been an excellent starter...

This was Madcity's brothers... neat fun idea...

so had the boat out a couple times have had no need to anchor just takeing it out for 2 or 3 hour runs around a local lake. just to get more comfortable with launching it and pulling it out of the water

we are taking it up camping next weekend though. i purchased a box anchor and a shore spike and some fenders. but am at a loss for what i should buy for anchor line and how much.

Will i be ok with some 3/8 nylon rope ? and how much should i buy ?

3/8" and a coated rode/chain and you're set.

You don't need a chain with the box anchor

well ive been busy getting my boat ready to go away camping with it this weekend. and was checking through the engine compartment because my blower was blowing the fuse.

to notice hey the blower hose is disintegrated. im not going to have enough time to source new hose and sort this out for the weekend. will i be ok without it?.

im pretty sure i am going to need to replace the blower aswell as it feals like the blades are jammed.

Well if you can't find the blower hose anywhere I have some that I'd part with. I had to order about sixty feet of it (that's the only way it came) and I have a bunch left over.
