    Voltage issue

    12.5V is waay too low. Fully charged should be 13.7 I believe.
  2. Impeller change on that genny is a piece of cake. Start there. And, as Iggy noted, definitely carry a spare.
  3. Yes, it is your emergency kill switch.
  4. Check your breakers -- the ones located back in the battery switch box.
  5. I have a 2005 310, which is probably pretty close to yours, so I'll weigh in where I can (especially since no one else has): 1) Not sure on this one. Ours came with a TV mounted to the forward closet door (making it visible from the salon) and one in the aft berth. I got rid of the forward one and mounted a 32" LED in the aft berth. 2) No issues with planing. And you'll love having a swim platform so close to the water. 3) Mine are 5.7s, which provide plenty of get-up-and-go. I have several friends with Chap 280/290s with 5.0s and they go like crazy. I think you'll probably be O
  6. I second Joe's comment above: Start with the anchor locker. The gelcote in it cracks easily, especially from the anchor chain knocking around. I found the issue in my 310 by myself into the V berth and looking up toward the locker while a buddy sprayed water into it.
  7. Serviceguy.... Sorry to hear about your low-water "adventure." Hope you're able to get it resolved without breaking the bank too much. You're just downstream from me a bit. Did the incident happen around Lake Pepin, by chance? There are lots of shallows around there, I've found.
  8. Good job. I religiously change out the impeller on my Kohler genset at the beginning of every year. It's so much easier than yanking all the coolant hoses and trying to track down bits of broken impeller.
  9. gr8lakes, I had that exact problem about 5 years ago on my 310 Sig. I solved by coating the entire area in 3M 5200 caulk and smoothing with a putty knife. It's a little tedious, but works like a charm. I haven't had an issue since.

    I'd be worried about these outdrives too. Maybe a bad Mercathode system, as TexasPilot pointed out, or another boat nearby bleeding serious current into the water (which wrecked a B3 on my previous boat). Either way, I'd think twice about this one.
  11. That spurting is normal. That's exactly how mine runs as well.
  12. I've had this happen to me a couple of times on very hot and muggy nights. AC freezes up to the point that you can even see the ice buildup on it. Shut it down, let the ice melt, then restart at a slightly warmer temp and you'll be fine.
  13. Yep, it registers at 3/4 full and, well, full full.
  14. Is your speedo working? If not, the tube has become disconnected and is almost certainly the leak you're seeing.
  15. As others have said, you'll be fine. Until last year, I left my boat in all season long without bottom paint. Yes, I had to clean it at year-end, and you may even need to do so after just a few days. But it's not a big deal.
