  1. Hello, Volvo does use 3 different height risers from 2000 to 2013 ( non catalyst ) The three sizes are 7.8", 10.3" & 11.3" and in some applications they stack a 6" extension under a 7.8" riser for extra height. Its a good practice to inspect for water trails running down the risers prior to leaving the dock. Click the link below to determine your riser height. http://www.cecilmarineonline.com/volvo-penta-5-0-5-7-manifold-replacement-kit-genuine-volvo-penta-exhaust-manifold-3847501-in-stock-ready-to-ship/

  11. Richard, are you suggesting that the boat companies such as sea ray, cobalt, Monterey, chaparral and more are touting trumped up statistics? Are you suggesting the reported statistics are not an actual representation of the 30 day in one year surveys? Are you saying they are not using an truly interdependent agency to compile the results? Have you read one of the surveys, I have and I think the are very comprehensive. And I'm sure you do know Chaparral has a very large presents in Europe and makes boats to Meet CE standards. I'm sure you also know they require such items as a manual bilge pump and different elect. systems. Wow that really innovative.. Now if you would like to do a line item for line item comparison between the CE, MMA & yacht cert. I would love to see it. So to imply that there is a head and shoulders difference between the two standards is not accurate given the waters that chaparral operate in IMO.

      Absolutely my pleasure.  I don't much like the slow demise of the SSi line, or even the introduction of the H20 line, but I realize the motivation behind it. 

      I wish there was a strong Chaparral dealer near me.  Once I bought mine (new), I've pretty much not been back.  I take it to a local Cobalt/Yamaha/Bayliner dealer for service/repairs.

      Keep up the positive presence on the forum.  Those of us who've been on the forum for a while appreciate it.  The newer ones will get there!


      Kevin Crady, happy 220 SSi owner!


  14. So is it your opinion that they " are subjective at best " or do you have information to suggest that they are not accurate? If so please share it with us as I would be very interested in seeing it. The truth is those statistics are compiled from an independent company that sends out satisfaction questionnaires 30 days and then 1 year after a boat is warranty registered. Remember Chaparral is producing in the area of 7,000 boat a year (Cobalt is about 2,000 we know that through state boat registrations) there are going to be issues, but the goal is for the dealer to take the lead with Chaparral's help & guidance to make their boat ownership a enjoyable experience. I don't mean to beat a dead horse but when people on this forum state their opinions as facts and when they are clearly uninformed as a few people are in this thread I will challenge them to prove what they say is correct.
  15. Valid point here you go.. February 11, 2016 Nashville, Georgia – Chaparral Boats continued its award winning streak when the company was recognized and awarded for the ninth consecutive year for excellence in Customer Satisfaction by the National Marine Manufacturer's Association (NMMA) presented at the Miami Boat Show. Chaparral was an award recipient in every line of boats in its 2016 fleet, including first­year recognition for its all new Vortex jet boats and SunCoast outboards. Chaparral's recognition in the widely popular jet boat category was particularly impressive because it was the first jet boat builder to receive this prestigious award. As the first and only recipient in the jet boat category, Vortex was a clear leader in this category. "This year's CSI awards spotlight two things," said Chaparral Executive Vice President and Founder Buck Pegg. "We consistently build innovative quality products for the pleasure and satisfaction of our customers worldwide. We take pride in our tradition of boat building excellence which has spanned over 50 years. "Secondly, it's all about teamwork”, continued Pegg, "and we have the marine industry's finest employees, dealer network and vendor partners. Our worldwide dealer network works tirelessly to ensure our customers have a great experience before, during, and after the purchase of their boat. This commitment has brought many new and repeat buyers to the Chaparral brand over the last five decades. Chaparral's clean­sweep extended to its bowriders, deck boats, cuddy and express cruisers, jet boats and fiberglass outboard lines. The Marine Industry CSI Awards program honors participating manufacturers that actively measure customer satisfaction and pursue continuous improvement to better serve the customer. Award recipients must achieve and maintain an independently­measured customer satisfaction standard of excellence of at least 90 percent or higher. Customer satisfaction results are measured over the past year and are based on information provided by customers purchasing a new boat or engine during the period between April 1and March 31, of each year. Participating manufacturers must survey all new boat buyers during this period. About Chaparral Boats, Inc & Robalo Boats LLC.
