let's start a string

you know you spend too much on engine parts when:
the money pouring out your pockets makes a sound when it hits the ground.

you know you spend too much on engine parts when:
you can dictate part numbers from memory over the phone.


you know you spend too much on engine parts when:
you call TCM and ask for Bob.


......?? any more?

every snowmobiling trip involves me dropping my sled off at the engine builder with a "damaged this trip list"

between the expense and the reliability issues the boat will stay all stock

So true, so funny, and yet so sad. And don't we love boating.
