    see doo trix

    Has anyone tried the See Doo trixx ? I am thinking about a PWC for my teen boys to play with while anchored in the cove and would appreciate any thoughts or recommendations.

    Prop advice 256ssi

    RPM matches the GPS and the cluster. I do not feel it is hitting the limiter as much as just running out of $^&. It climbs slow from 4200 to 4400. It may go slightly higher but I do not want to hold it wide open for more than a minute. I have had trim all over the place and it goes fastest when it is slightly porpoising. Still fun and a great boat. I just wish tow/ski eye was not so low but understand that was the only option with the center walk thru.

    Prop advice 256ssi

    yeah, the 64 mph for me was one time with two adults and half of tank of fuel. Usually tops out at 59-61 with two adults. I actually think it is way over propped. 3000 rpm 40 mph 3500-3600 50 mph 4300-4400 58-60 depending on wind and trim. wont rev past 4400.

    Prop advice 256ssi

    I own the boat now and have for a few years. I spoke to JC after buying it and the 70mph was one time in perfect conditions with a tail wind. I have had it best of 64 but normally with a four adults and full gear she runs 58-60. It has a five blade prop and is a little sluggish out of the hole but will cruise at 40 mph at 3000 rpm

    Factory rub rail and back

    I hit the dock today and peeled back and bent the chrome rub rail. Can I still buy factory replacment? If so where?

    Starter 256ssi.

    Ok. Thanks. I towed it to the boat ramp and loaded it on the trailer and will take it to a marine mechanic to fix as I don't have the time or ambition to do it myself. I spent about five minutes looking at it and realized it was not a job I wanted to do on the lift. Thanks for the advise.

    Also will a automotive starter work or does it have to be a marine one.

    Can you change the starter on a 256ssi without removing the engine

    Captains call problem

    Captains call problem

    That may have something to do with it. I have always switched mine when underway. Did switch them on at over 4000 rpm this weekend when racing another boat. Maybe I have damaged the solenoids ?
