Ok, so i replaced both risers on the port engine.

The pics are of the port side, the starboard riser actually looked a LOT better. I did replace it but will clean up and keep it as a spare. I should of bought more mounting kits as i would have checked the starboard engine risers but the Orings are toast once you take them of.

Any how the risers on the starboard engine look newer on the outside at least.

1 down 18 more issues to go :)

For some reason the port alternator is not working and and water temp guage reads zero. but the boat is off for its tune up tomorrow so i'll let you know how it goes.
