I just replaced one of my 2 injectors after motoring over 500 miles on the Tenn-Tom waterway. The old one developed a fuel leak where the fuel pipe screwed into the body. Looked like a defective thread, but could be a cracked injector body. Leaked so much, it caused the motor to run rough.

Glad I had a spare.
