Racer, you must have received the detailed manual because mine didn't have the "then you put it in the water" part!
All kidding aside, to the OP, congrats on the new ride. You could check the Maxum website, look under the "archived" model years to see if they have the not so useful Owners manual for your 1998. I found mine there. Welcome and good luck.
