Wishing I was on the water!!!!!
So I take my boat out of the ramp today and am going around doing all me checks and I notice something strange. When I look closer I see a huge crack on the lower end. I didn't hit anything, because I only trolled or idled around this morning, in deep water at that? I can not figure out what has happened. It looks like something blew it out from the inside. I don't know if it can be repaired or if I will have to get a new housing or complete lower unit. It is a 2002 50hp Honda 4 stroke and is running fine. Has anybody ever seen something simillar? Any suggestions on who can repair/ replace? I am in Winter Haven and on a very fixed budget........ :'( Here are some pictures of the ominous crack.
