This original 2007 muffler has less than 400 hours on it. It was weeping water just above the mounting screw. After sanding the area, I found this hairline crack. Repaired yesterday with Marine-Tex and will test this weekend. Has anybody seen this before?

The Auqalift is special order (approx. 5 weeks) form Catalina Direct. I doubt that Vernalift fits in the OEM location on the C-310?

Found a local fiberglass muffler repair guy through the manager at Summit North Marina, DE. $400 which is same cost as new But it was done in two days instead of four to six weeks.

A bit of polyester and FG tape would have been less than 10% of the cost and very easy repair in the boat. Mine cracked around the inlet tube, about a hour job to fix it up.

Looks nice all painted up.
