We received an estimate for work, that our mechanics recommends, prior to boat being driven . We are trying to get the boat to the yard, to have it cleaned and painted. I would like to confirm that we are not being overcharged for the parts or anticipated labor.

Labor: Exhaust risers cooling passages are clogged with rust on both engines. Replace all risers,
