I was thinking the same but it looked a little longer than the one shown on the precisionboats web page.

I think I have the correct description now of this pipe. I am positive this is an old Aerotech 7.5 pipe for the OB. The grooves in the seem are the sign(they were to stop the nylon ties from sliding going by the pick I am looking at (RCBM September 1994 page 19).
How does it work Dave?

I tried Joe Monohan's 707 Specialties site and it appears to be closed as I can't get in. Joe sold Aero-Tech boats plus a lot of aftermarket parts for K&B outboards. The HTB site is also DOA.
Bob Kinsell bought the forms for somebodies OB tuned pipes but I don't know whose.

Bob and Karen moved from Fort Wayne, Indiana to somewhere in the Atlanta, Georgia area not too long ago, he still has a daughter that lives about 20 miles from me yet so I don't see them around any more..

you will have to use the google search link when you click on those links for some reason, but the sites and products are there. Maybe someone can put up a better link.
Had an email from Bob on the 8th offering to sell me the parts but cant get a reply since.
