I replaced the original exhaust riser on my 2000 MKII 2 years ago. Got the replacement from Catalina Direct. Less than a year later - under 50 hours, I noticed a small hole in the riser. I got in touch with Catalina Direct who, got in touch with the manufacturer. CD wouldn't replace it, but they said the manufacturer may if they deemed it a defect, but I'd have to return it to CD, then they would return it to manufacturer, then upon inspection they may replace it. They had no idea how long it would take, but a couple months was not out of the question. I don't want to be without my boat for 2 months, so that's really not worth it to me. I may look into a welder, or just buy another and suck it up. (I don't have the time to build one myself, as I've seen some members here have done) I'm curious if anyone here has had a similar issue with a CD replacement riser before I get another or try to fix this one...
