Don't get seduced by the low prices for cheap tires; in my experience the additional cost of a premium brand is always worth it.

How large is your tank? I'm guessing 200 gallons or so, my advice is top off the tank(s) and then run the boat. Since we're on the West Coast and don't have this odd stuff called snow, use the boat!

Yamaha had issues with corrosion in their exhausts up to, I think, 2006. I have a pair of 2003's. The reason for my questions is that there could be something other than corrosion (e.g. repairable...
