But the $97 looks good... Lol
You can get it cheaper at Amazon. This was the exact same one I saw in WestMarine. It is just fantastic for boat oil changes. I use it for my cars now as crawling under the oil pan was getting annoying. Super fast, really is a great reliable item. Well worth it!!!! Free shipping with Super Savor shipping (UPS Ground) and is a Prime shipping item.


Additionally I use it for changing lube in my saildrive. It sucks cold 90 weight oil out of the saildrive lickity split. Well beyond my expectations.
