I understand that when it is a matter of safety, buy the $$$$$marine$$$$$ parts. Just so you know...I bought a water pump from an online marine parts store. The "marine" water pump for a mercruiser 5.7 (Small Block Chevy) was $132.00. I took that pump to Advance auto parts. They had the exact same pump, exact casting numbers, parts, etc, It was 31.99 at Advance, with a one year warranty. So, call me foolish or cheap or crazy, but $100 is at least 30 gallons of gas...Thats alot of time on the water. I guess nobody cares about that. I may sell it and go back to auto racing.

The Price difference is usually that the impeller is made from a non corrosive material such as bronze so that the abusive marine environment doesnt eat it up like a lion eats baby zebras! I would only spend as much money on your boat as you want it to work trouble free- For me though, I figure that boating is down right dangerous unless all the things that have to work, do reliably, and not fail resulting in injury or death. Not fun.

Happy and Safe boating season to all!! Let the Games begin!!!!!
