  1. Hello,
  2. Sounds like a business opportunity.
  3. They look very nice. Here is a link that allows you to design panels online. http://www.frontpanelexpress.com/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIoPTqp_7N2QIVjFcNCh2quQE2EAAYASAAEgLVKfD_BwE Any panel that is aluminum ( about 2004 & newer ) Google search Hydrographic printing. Hydrographic printing is the method of printing the wood grain or any other style of finish onto the aluminum panel and it is possible to have them refinished.
  4. Just curious if anyone knows of a manufacture making boats under 30’ that a second bilge pump is standard equipment. If you seen one on a option list I would like to know that as well . Please let me know what make & model as if they are using that as a competitive advantage i’ll be happy to bring it to Chaparral’s attention.
  5. Just an FYI keep your engine hatch hinges lubricated as they are no longer available. This was a very unique hinge only used by Chaparral.
  6. It’s funny you mentioned the engine lid because with the new hatch design and hatch seal Chaparral is using they almost are water tight.
  7. Chaparral has stopped producing all extended platforms. So swimplatforms.com will now be your only option.
  8. Wingnut, Yamaha now offers 250’s & 300’s in white. So no more third party horrendous paint over grease jobs. Its going to be hard to find them due to high demand so plan on seeing them in 2019.
  9. A 267 & 287 both have a self bailing cockpit, no need for an extra bilge pump.
  10. Congratulations on the new boat! This might be of interest to you. It's a link to Chaparral parts guides for your year boat. http://www.cecilmarineonline.com/350-signature-2009-parts-guide/
  11. Sorry, this is the one for the swivel.. http://www.cecilmarineonline.com/cable-repair-kit-for-swivel-operation-2012-newer/
  12. Hello, I think you will need to replace the cable. http://www.cecilmarineonline.com/seat-cable-kit-new-style/
  13. Shepherd very well said..as always!
  14. Well yes, but mostly no. It is true the cast iron block was manufactured by GM and both MerCruiser and Volvo utilize them. Virtually every other ( with the exception of distributors ) part in the engine I.E. ignition, control modules, wiring harnesses, cooling, exhaust are different. Rarely do you see a engine fail by themselves. It is usually related to an outside source causing the engine to have an issue.
  15. Just so we are all clear, Volvo and MerCruiser do not use the same engines. Volvo uses a GM based block which is all aluminum and freshwater cooled. These engines became available in Volvos product line up about three years ago give or take. MerCruiser has develop their own engine blocks that are proprietary to them. So although you are seeing a Volvo 350 it is not a 5.7 it is a now a 5.3 GM aluminum block engine. Regarding the issue this gentleman is having I’m sure his dealer has already been in contact with Volvo, they’ve developed a course of action and hopefully his issue will get resolved quickly.
