    2017 Engine

    I was going thru the 2017 Chaparral build a boat. If I'm looking at it correctly it appears Volvo engines are not listed. Did Chaparral go 100 Mercury? Anyway dreaming about a new Chaparrral before I retire next year.

    Boat Insurance Fuel and Spill Coverage

    I dug deeper and progressive has $300K for spillage thats pretty large I'll run with them thanks for the input
  3. I'm getting quotes to renew my boat insurance 2006 256 SSI. Boat is seldom trailered as we have a place on Lake Conroe. I have one quote from Boat US that includes a line item Fuel and Other Spill Liability Coverage. The other quote from Progressive does not show that line item. There is over a $100 differnce between quotes with Boat US being the more expenive option. Seeking thoughts on Boat US VS Progressive. thanks you

    Replacement Carpet Kits

    Has anybody used this company for replacement carpet for their boat? Prices seem reasonable. My boat is 10 years old and carpet backing is coming all apart and just looking pretty worn. http://www.snapincarpet.com/ecommerce/detail.cfm?id=260&cat=51

    slow starting volvo penta 320

    This year it was fluids, filters, and I needed a water pump. I had wires caps replaced couple years ago but I'll check my paperwork might be longer than I think. Appreciate the suggestions.

    Thanks for the quick responses So it's something electronic keeping the fuel pressure to the engine. I'll start investigating

    slow starting volvo penta 320

    I have a 2006 320 Volvo Penta in our 256 SSI. 415 Hours on the engine. Always ran great done annuall maintenance every year. This year it's been hard to start on a few occasions. It starts easier when I put the shifter in neutral and can rev up engine as I hit the key. Any ideas on where to start looking for problems. Just change fuel filter water pump and all the fluids. Thanks

    marine head seat

    Good Day, I have a 2006 256 SSI boat. Well after ten years I find myself needing to replace the head seat. It's the flushable version with a tank. Is this a regular seat or something I have to special order? thanks

    Speaker replacement

    Thanks for all the suggestions. I pulled the old speakers measured the holes and ordered up 4 of these speakers online from Crutchfield. I've always had good luck with them. JL Audio MX650-CCX-CG-WH I'll let you know how they sound. Hope to be on the water this weekend. Suppose to warm back up some down in Houston Texas
