Yep. Some new gaskets with some light sanding will do fine. For fresh water, the risers will last a long time, even if there is rust on outside of the exhaust manifolds.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.
