Can't help you with a web site for parts, but my brother and I had a 1994 with the 120hp in it. The boat was a blast for 3 years until the engine blew. We sold it for dam near the same price we paid for it, even with the blown engine.

I purchased a '95 Rage 15 in Oct. with the same 115 OMC engine and I have not had it in the water yet mainly because of the weather here in Va. Cold and windy! I got some great advice from Lisa at Turbo Marine Jet. Email her! They have all of the parts/some manuals, etc. I also got some great help from Colley Marine in Virgina Beach. They are an OMC dealer and they have a mechanic and a nice lady who answers the phone (sorry, but I don't remember her name!) who know the Rage! If you need additional manuals, take a look at Ken Cook.com They have manuals for everything! I hope I like the boat! I am selling a Hydrostream Vector 15' that is a 69 kt go-fast for the Rage mainly because I now have young grandkids to cruise the Bay with! If I can help with anything else, let me know!

Had a 92 (I believe) with the 115 OMC. Loved it at first, my first boat, but then started to realize a few things. After one year put about $1800 into her to keep the engine going. The noise from the exhaust was defeaning. Finally, the boat never could idle in one spot, always had to be moving due the impeller sucking in water. My son loved being pulled by it though, watch where you throw the rope, it always seemed to be sucked in by the impeller, (Bad day).
I was able to sell it though for more than I paid, and then I met a local guy who put a 60 HP Honda outboard on the back. Took work setting up bracket and controls, but doable.
Good luck with boat and be safe.
