    My Christmas gift to myself. Exhaust manifolds, risers and water pumps.

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



    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.

    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...
