      Wish we could still buy them for that price !! take two pleasefinally took mine out for the first time since i have it back together. ran just fine but had water coming in someplace . after doing some looking around it was the speedo line coming from the pickup . seems like a mouse or some critter ate through it and guess what the faster i go the more water came in . so off to west marine and replace and no more leak !
