Hello all

My name is J and I just purchased my first boat lase week. A 1965 Niagara which was garage kept never restored but in fantastic shape.  The 33hp Evinrude starts with a quick push of a button everytime.  I was born and raised in the sport of skydiving so this is going to be a new adventure.  Have a couple of minor things I would like to do to the boat such as add a couple of original style cleats to the bow and repair the convertible style tops.  Looks like it has the ability to zip in 3 "windows" but can not seem to find info on it.  Hopefully I will find the answers here. Looking forward to it and all of you.

First and foremost, welcome aboard J.  Some decent deals come up on Ebay for cleats ocassionally, I scoured the pages for months while my project was in progress.  (It became sort of a "pass time" ritual, LOL).  Many canvas or upholstery shops (locally) will be able to help with repairs and replacement "windows" for your top.  Looking forward to seeing some pics of your Niagara!
