Default Looking for 2 pair of Gil Dry risers for TRS

Anyone got a couple of pair of these in good condition for a reasonable price?

Mine were Conners but the manifolds are Gil.

And Puder, no remarks about being "Stupid Loud" .
That's the way I like it.

My Motto; "If it's too loud, your too old...


Thanks

Yea I know. $2700 is quite a bit for risers. Hopefully I can find some good used ones. If not, I'll probably be calling you after this season.

Tank,
Yes, they are dry pipes. The boat originally came with Hawk engines. At some point someone installed Gil exhaust and somehow it ended up with Conner Marine Dry Risers and water filled speedometer. The original owner of this boat was a Ferrari dealer in Longbeach somewhere. I would like to keep the dry pipes since this is the way the boat came and we don't have any noise issues up here. Less worry about reversion.

Problem with these risers is this. Apparently Conner Marine made the risers with carbon steel inner pipes which of course rusted out. The previous owner had the pipes taken apart and new cres inner pipes welded in. Well now there are cracks in the outer pipes and they leak. Some inside the boat some outside. Fortunately they don't leak in to the exhaust, but it still sucks. I have fixed them temporarily until I can located something. I hope somebody has some. New is just too expensive.

outer37, I'll call you.
