No it's not, it must have been well cared for, otherwise it would'nt lasted that long. Guess that's why it's soo hard to sell a used salt water boat.

I've got lots of fresh water manifolds in great shape for sale if you want to replace with Stock.

Agreed. Rag you must have flushed basically everytime.

I tried to save mine after two years by soaking them in Muriatic Acid, cleaning them up and then grinding the block side and riser side smooth. I took them off at the end of the next season and the pitting was back more than I expected so I tossed them.
