  1. I just cut off 1/2" either end of my fortress anchor and it fits a treat (265ssi) and was easy to do. I also give it a light spray with silicon once in a while (Well away from the boat) and it always comes up nice and clean, if the is any mud on it washes off super easy....
  2. The navigation light (NAV) may have 3 way switch , Navigation lights, off and anchor light... try that....
  3. I think that it is a regulation in the US to have the baffles built in... When I had a system exported to the UK they left them out and charged me $100 less
  4. Can you not just remove the plastic fitting in the middle and remove the hose to the left and just push the plain hose back on to the fitting on the left?
  5. Call " Sea Start" even if you are not a member they will come out and fix your boat, but you will have to sign up as a member there and then..... For those of you in the US "Sea Start" is a UK based at sea brake down service....
  6. I have often thought about modifying one of these products to fit... http://www.stebel.it/stebel/products.asp?IDserie=18&uso=1&tipologia=nautica I would not have it exposed, but you can if you want...
  7. Is that picture of the manifold above from Hardin Marine? I have just fitted a Gen 7 Sea pump from them and I have to say it's a top quality piece of kit...
  8. Ok, just to be clear I bought a 383 Mag Stroker from Mercury Marine, it came with an ECU. It's not some dodgy rebuild by a bunch of bandits. As for the air flow o2 sensors and all that, well I let my marine engineer handle all that, he has all the latest mercury computer kit and he is legendary round these parts. As for the prop I was running a 26P and had to step up to a 28P to stop the rev limiter cutting in. Flat out exhaust open 49mph and I think that was 4975rpm (Don't quote me on the rpm) The reason for getting the 383 was at the time it was best deal for me, to buy a boa
  9. Hang on... I just lifted out the 350 and binned it and replaced it with a 383 straight out the box and re propped the B3, I'm very happy with it... I would write more but my lunch break is over... Have a look at my old posts...
  10. I would go with the above... On my 265 it is easy to just pop the hose from the fuel filter and connect a separate take with a priming pump (like you have on an outboard) and run it on a mix of Gas (petrol here in the UK) with some 2 stroke oil and a dash of fogging oil mix in for good measure....
  11. New girlfriend for me.... Oh and may be a new GPS
  12. I would say they are, that swim platform also fits other Chaparrals. Maybe check out the parts list on this site, but I'm super sure they are the same...
  13. Now wall all love moving pictures, here is a website that has cameras pointing to the area that I do most of my boating, we even have one of your US aircraft carrier's at anchor. http://www.camsecure.co.uk/ryde-webcam.html Enjoy!
  14. Well I would first spend money on trim tabs, then a swim platform if you don't have those.... Then if you want to fit a Corsa system go ahead, it will take about 6 hours and the hardest part is cutting the holes in the side of the boat. Measure once, twice, and once again just to make sure. You will find a little red socket in the wiring loom stern dead centre ready to plug the actuators into so the electrics are super easy. Now to be honest it is kind of a waste of money, but I would do it again. It's a boys and there toys thing.......
  15. I had a 2004 215ssi a few years back with a 5ltr Mercruiser and a 5 blade prop. It had a super clean bottom and ran like a dream, but it only ever managed 49mph.... I would be surprised if you could reach 49mph with a 4.3....
