Default Thank you Hardin marine!

I purchased a used Apache this summer, two weeks after I received it all 4 exhaust manifolds started leaking, and BADLY! I replaced them with Hardin marine manifolds, ran it for a few hours, and ended up with a crack in one of the new manifolds. After sending it back to Hardin they determined that it had overheated and cracked. Turns out that the powdercoating had come loose and clogged the tailpipes, (normal waterflow at idle, low to none at high speed) causing the manifolds to crack. Bad enough I had to replace the manifolds two weeks after purchasing the boat, imagine the thought of having to pay for a fifth one.
Hardin Marine replaced the cracked manifold FREE, no questions asked. Jeff even walked me through the process to diagnose, and offered advise on how to resolve. I cant say enough nice things about how well I was treated.
There seems to be a lot of opinions on here about manifolds, but if service is at all important Hardin is tops in my book.
Thanks again Hardin Marine.
