    What outdrive do I have (And mysterious item)

    It's not a Gen 2 at all. Too old. Not sure when the Bravos came out. The bottom pic is a speedo pick up for sure.

    Could be an old Alpha 1 but hard to tell. Look for the serial number with that I can tell you.

    WebSite

    Hey guys, I'm looking for that website where you can download all the Mercruiser Manuals. I had it saved as a favorite but had redo my computer and lost everything. The site was something like www.boat.us or something like that. I know I posted on here for other asking for manuals but my search keeps coming up empty.
  9. You Think?? I have a 29 footer and I don't take out more than 6. The wight and just moving around.

    Mantus anchor 19 h20 sport

    The Mantus 8lb fits into the front locker of the 19 h20 and is a perfect anchor for the boat , ive had a Danforth , Box anchor and this little Mantus is far superior it sets really quickly and really digs in and holds , Sydney harbour beaches get busy and bays get crowded anchoring is tight , the anchor does not budge even in winds of 30 knts no sign of any dragging , ive no connection with Mantus , but i just want to share this because now i can relax with a beer and not worry about the boat dragging onto another boat , Cheers Bako

    Chaparral boat sizes, wtf?

    Swim platform is integrated on that year if I recall correctly, so yes, 22’ 4” overall length includes swim platform.
  15. Interesting read on the link shared . Thanks for that. Well it seems it’s 26’8” tip to tip. No real reason mine isn’t yacht cert. But doesn’t bother me , really don’t care . Gonna enjoy the next couple weeks of boating into November and it’s put away till spring. Happy Boating , Joey

    We are interested in a 2009 Sunesta 224 and wondering if the 22' 4" length I see on the specs includes the swim platform?

    Yet another winterize question

    I've been reading al of this back and forth and I do it this way, too. The only thing I additionally do is to drain the system through my single point drain when I'm done, leaving it dry. I have my valve switching system right at my muffs. I purge the antifreeze from my bucket down to the valve. I open the antifreeze valve and then gradually turn off the water valve. Not real slow, between 5 and 10 seconds. The antifreeze isn't any colder than the hose water for sure, probably warmer. Here's my set up...

    What outdrive do I have (And mysterious item)

    The speedo pickup is built into the outdrive on Gen 2 so having a separate one could indicate that it's not Gen 2, or they completely plugged it up. Check serial numbers.

    What outdrive do I have (And mysterious item)

    The last picture is of your speedo sensor. It might be more accurate to look at the data plate to see what drive it is. Paddlewheel? got a pic? maybe aftermarket?
  23. Hi, 1990 Chaparral Signature 27 Please find below three photos. The top two are of my outdrive. Can someone tell me if its an Alpha One Gen 1 or Gen 2 ? The bottom picture is of a mysterious object at the back of the boat under the waterline. It feels like its a switch of some sort but I've no idea. Oh and I found out why my speedo wasn't working. Some little clam-type creatures have made their home on the paddlewheel. Sadly I'll have to evict them. Thanks Stu

    B.O.A.T.

    Ohh I get that, I meant samething as in since it is apart now whatever he feels should legitimately be changed I am okay with.
  25. I have had small debris (leaves, twigs, garbage, etc) works its way into my bilge and cause issues with my float, usually it prevents the float from coming down and the bilge stays high. One time I had a mechanic drop oil in my bilge. As the temperature dropped the oil collagualated and the bilge did not like this. I flush my bilge out every spring.
