  1. Yes, the filer is marked 5/08 and says 150 hours on it. Time for a change! Also, the seating is the L-shaped rear seats with walk through. We also have cushions that can be put in the walkthrough to make the seating go all the way across.

  3. Here's a photo of my 4 gas springs in my '04 Chap 220 SSi engine compartment. Merc 5.7engine. It looks different from the way it looks in their manual, but the engine in the manual is a Volvo. Not sure if this was the standard method for the Merc engine or not. Interested in hearing from others with '04 220 SSi Merc 5.7
  4. Oh, I'll definitely get it fixed. That's why I'm bringing it up here as I know it's obviously an important issue. I will test it by lifting the float with the panel switch off. I didn't try that as I assumed it didn't have power unless the switch is on, but I now realize that it probably does as that's basically an override switch. It may be that it's working just fine, but just needs more water in the bilge to turn on (or me lifting up the float.) I'll also look at how the water is getting in there in the first place. @ still crazy - is your 2004 a 220 ssi? My boat cover does cover the en
  5. The boat has a float switch on it, but it doesn't appear to be working properly (assuming that it's wired properly and is in fact wired to the battery). I'll test it with the panel bilge switch off the next time I'm there, but I'm sure that with the amount of water that was in the engine compartment yesterday, it should have been running. The pump was half (or more) covered with water. Thanks for the great info...
  6. Yes, there are definitely four there. And they still don't hold it up! Only the home made wooden stick does that.
  7. Just bought an '04 220 SSI. I just got a new cover, but after a lot of rain the day after I got it, there was a fair amount of water in the engine compartment. I'm obviously working with the vendor who did the top to figure out why so much water came in (thru the vents I think), but it made me wonder if I should always leave the bilge switch on (that's on the cockpit panel) when the boat is docked in a slip on the lake. Our bilge pump is obviously not wired directly to the battery, but I am just wondering if leaving it one should just be "standard operating procedure" for us after docking. A
  8. just an update on my earlier post...The $30 version that I got from Wayzata Marine does NOT fit into the clips in the compartment. It fits into the compartment, but it doesn't actually "clip" in. Does anyone know if the one from Cecil Marine above actually "clip" into place? The folks at Wayzata Marine told me that there aren't anchors available that actually fit into the clips and the compartment of the '04 220 SSI. I find that hard to believe. Can anyone confirm or refute?
  9. Can someone who bought a 2004 Chaparral 220 SSi when it was new tell me if there was an anchor that came with it or that could be bought at the time that actually fit in the anchor compartment that is designed into the boat? By "Fit" I mean that it actually "clipped" into place and was big enough to work with a 22' boat. I just bought a used '04 220 SSI and the previous owner told me that he lost his and the local Chap dealer tells me that there aren't any anchors that actually clip into that compartment. I found the one from Cecil Marine that is recommended on another thread, but I'm wonde
  10. I just bought a used 2004 Chaparral 220 SSi. The spring lift gas springs under both the engine compartment and the ski compartment do not hold the compartments up on their own. The first question I have is, are they supposed to? I assume so, but I didn't know if perhaps they were only meant to lower it slowly rather than actually holding them up. Assuming that they are supposed to hold them up on their own, what part numbers are the "factory-specified" parts? My ski compartment has a spring lift SL33-40-1. My engine compartment has two SL34-120-1, one SL34-60-1, and one SL34-80-1. Are tho
  11. I found one that fits my 2004 Chapparl 220 SSI here http://www.cecilmari...D-ANCHOR/Detail It's listed for $87, but I just bought one from Wayzata Marine in Wayzata, MN for $30. It is quite small and it remains to be seen if it will actually work in the lake. It says it's an "8". It does fit in the boat and is apparently the one that originally came with the boat.
