    He's right you know. That hot pipe setup alone is a good $200.00 by itself. It's a newer engine and is well worth saving. I had one in a 'rigger and regret selling it with the boat when I sold it.

    Send the QD in for a rebuild or update. They'd rather do it right for you than for you to try it. A freshly rebuilt QD should take a lot more prop than that.

    No, but I get funny looks from the nurses when I ask for my empty IV bags back. Fortunately I show them on my cell phone what I'm going to do with them.

    IV bag. You can use a Sullivan 16oz. SS tank with the neoprene plug if you want but I got spoiled on IV bags. Joe sells his own so they're not medical like Baxter's.
