    2017 H2O hunting while at low speed

    KJDR, I have no issues, but I have a totally different boat. I used to own a 23 foot Glastron CVX that had low speed wander and it annoyed the #$^% out of me. Never understood why or was able to correct it before I upgraded boats. I googled the problem and below is decent article explaining why and a few tips. First thought that crossed my mind was there is something up with the range of trim on your out drive. Below article mentions to trim up slightly at slow speeds to help. https://www.boatingmag.com/how-to/controlling-low-speed-wander

    21 H2o Surf

    Has anyone wake surfed behind one of these Volvo FFD and Malibu Surf Gate Chap combos? If so, what was the overall experience like?

    Second Bad Voltage Sensitive Relay Module?

    Thanks WWT, your explanation makes sense as to shortening the life of the VSR. I will change the frequency of using the charger to not using it in boating season since we are on the boat almost every week and keeping the charger hooked up while not in use 100% of the time was most likely overkill.

    Norfork Lake Conditions

    Don't know, haven't been to Norfork in years. This forum has a pretty active Norfork section, you may post on it and get some good intel. http://forums.ozarkanglers.com/forums/

    Second Bad Voltage Sensitive Relay Module?

    I have checked and it appears to be correct per diagrams. The battery switch is the stock OEM, Iooks like a 2 battery Blue Sea with 1, 1+2, off and 2 as selections. I do have a 2 bank smart battery charger connected when boat is not in use, connected directly to batteries, not the switch/VSR. I charge it with the battery switch in off position. Could it be activating the VSR the whole time it is charging?
  6. I think my VSR on my factory battery switch has gone bad for the second time in 3 years. Gonna order a new one and install. The power to my boat doesn't turn completely off, only partial when switch is in off position, for example everything still has power but not enough to turn motor over. I replaced the original VSR with a new one about 3 years ago when I experienced this first and it resolved my problem. Now it has come back. Anyone have ideas or similar issues in what the root cause could be?

    Table Rock Lake

    Spent last Saturday out on Tablerock, current level is 928.5--about 13 feet above normal. Boating is fine, just be aware that there is some extra floating obstacles in the water because of the high levels and flooding of tributary rivers.

    Chaparral 264 with factory arch

    I had the same issue in finding a cover that protected the entire boat and arch. I ended up having a custom one piece cover made by a local canvas shop. Very happy with the results, the entire boat is covered, protected and stays much cleaner.

    Sunesta 264 w/ arch winter cover recommendations?

    I also have the 264 with snap covers and the factory mooring cover. My boat is on a lift under roof in our slip year round. I wasn't happy with either of the factory covers since they don't protect the arch, top and speakers. I had a custom one piece cover made that goes over the top of the arch and covers the entire topside. I use it now as my only cover and it is well worth the money. My only complaint is I wish it went further below the rub rail than the current 8-10 inches.

    tomnjoe, There are two restaurants over at Coney Island in the cove across from Point 7. Sharkey's Pizza which isn't very good and Lakeside Resort--highly recommend.

    Table Rock soon!

    Hello Tim, What activities are you looking for? Mainly restaurants accessible by water?

    Table Rock on 4th of July Weekend

    For food and drinks I would check out Big Cedar Lodge--eat on the back porch of Devils Pool, Chateau request a table with a view, Tiki Bar at Rock Lane Lodge, and maybe D'Manoco they have a new restaurant pool bar I have not been to with a courtesy dock. For coves, hit Cow Creek, The Swings and Naked Cove. If you want a land day trip, Silver Dollar City is an incredible amusement park. Not sure when all the organizations are shooting fireworks, but Big Cedar, Chateau, Silver Dollar City, Kimberling City and a couple others all shoot--check their website or call for shoot date. If you see us out, flag us down to say hello!

    No Beeps When Starting Engine 264 Extreme

    Rich, I feel your pain, when I first got my 264 it had two deep cycle batteries and I had all kinds of electronic/gauge issues especially when using the Garmin while under way. I replaced one of the deep cycles with a marine high cold cranking amp starting battery and to use under way, haven't had issues since. Use the deep cycle only on hook. Any chance you have a PIC of how your buzzer is wired under dash?
