  1. I think you are correct about it being a Lewmar Pro Sport and the replacement model. Used mine all weekend and all the ski boat / wake surf boats were jealous about the windlass anchor. Mine did not have remote foot switches on the bow, as I wish it did. Sometimes the rope will get tangled and you need to back the windlass off and then I need to have someone at the helm moving the switch up and down if it's tangled.
  2. It's a horizontal windlass made by Lewmar. Not sure the make and model, but the boat is a 1999 so I'm sure it's out of production. The windlass is the way to go, no need to get up on top to drop anchor.
  3. I also take the a hose from the dock and the wife puts water in the bowl as she holds the pedal down. They pump the tank out until the water is pretty "clear" then we stop pumping while she adds a gallon of water to the tank.
  4. I have twins 5.7's like you and getting to the plugs behind the risers between the motors are a pain. Just take your time and try not to drop anything. If you do it will roll to the back where the drain plug is and that is where you will need a magnet or one of those flexible grabbers to reach what you dropped. If you going to change the wires mine as well change the distributer cap as well.
  5. You want to add a hard top to your boat? I don't know if I would trust a powered hardtop. Just my thoughts, unless it's coming straight from the factory installed already.
  6. Yep..that's the one i use to pump out.
  7. I have it and don't like it. It's too noisy and it's a fixed thru hull exhaust. No way to make it quiet. I would not do it unless you install the quick and quiet exhaust system.
  8. 3M 4200 is what I would use because it's not permanent like the 3M 5200. I tried to remove something sealed with 5200 and it was a chore. +1 on the warranty. Check with your dealership.
  9. Yep your gonna have to settle for something that is a "close" match. At least your interior material will be made of the thicker stuff instead of the thin stuff. I took all my cushions and back rest off of my cuddy and took it to a shop and they redid them all. Came out nice and it wasn't too pricey.
  10. I think diesel is a good way to go but my marinas don't carry diesel, so if I needed fuel on long weekend trips I would have to put my boat on a trailer then trailer it to a gas station 1/2 hour away from the lake then re-launch the boat. Could end up being a 3 hour process from the time I leave base camp go get fuel and return.
  11. I give all boats as much room as possible when passing. Whether they are skiers in the water prepping to get pulled up on plane, fishing boats trolling, bass fisherman along the shoreline, kayakers and paddle boarders as well. I will keep the boat on plane since it makes less of a wake than me pushing water at 15 mph. I think it's just common courtesy to just not rock the boats of others when possible. It impossible to leave no wake, but courtesy is always appreciate by all boaters.
  12. Yep...the weight adds up pretty fast.
  13. No problem cruising 35-40 mph. It'll do that it it's sleep.
  14. Did you check the voltage at the splice? You might have a bad splice. Also there should be one wire from the switch to the two blowers. So there a splice in the engine compartment somewhere
  15. Mark....thats a nice boat. You'll be happy with it. As long as you have twins, you'll be fine. I don't think there is that much of a difference between the 5.0 and 5.7.
