Today I spent 4 boat bucks... just on parts.

:mad:

Tell me again why I do this?

Because it seemed like a good idea at the time? Hope the gift is what you wanted! As soon as they are installed, you will be happy that you did it. Happy. And broke.

I know how you feel. There are a myriad of reasons why we do this. I have been around the lake since I was 5. I cannot imagine not being around the lake.

....because when you're on your death bed, you won't be wishing you had another $4K in the bank. All in the name of good times my friend....good times.

Having just replaced my manifolds you will be much better off. Also you won't be saying, "I really should have replaced those manifolds!"

Did you get those new manifolds installed? I am sure it is easier walking, with all that weight out of your pocketbook!

I asked Santa for a new dinghy motor, but apparently he didn't have room on the sleigh...

last year a boat neighbor bought his wife diesel fuel for Christmas.
This year my wife is getting Engine gauges.

I just engraved 4 Browning Citori o/u shotguns for a grandpa who's giving them to his grandsons for xmas. Those 4 guns cost him just shy of 8 boat bucks....

It's the price we pay for the things that make us smile. And it's money well spent. :)
