My friend bought his boat new in 06 and has never changed it. He called me yesterday broke down on the water. He said he was driving and noticed the temp gauge was through the roof so he just shut his boat off and called to get a tow in. We hauled his boat to my house. Which while its only 10 miles from the lake took about 3 hours because one of the tires on his trailer exploded! It was in pieces so we came to my house got a jack and some tools took it off then tied the axle up and drove it here about 5 miles an hour because the other tire looked like it wanted to blow too!
Needless to say he's buying 4 new tires today and keeping the best of the three old ones for a spare and I'm doing a tune up on his boat replacing evrything he hasn't! lol
I replace my impeller every season as its easy to get too and cheap insurance then just throw the old ones in the boat for spares in case I ever lose one while out on the water!
Picked up the new impeller today, can't believe how cheap it was. $30, my buddy almost grenaded his boat over a $30 part! lol And he does owe me big time. Still trying to figure out what to get out of him? Of course he's the ranger at a local lake so maybe some special privleges like boating after hours or a get out of jail free card? Perhaps even make one weekend a no tubers or jetskis on the lake day! lol That would be nice and worth it!
