  1. Mississippi River in St. Louis between Alton Dam and Winfield Dam, also the Illinois River and Grafton, IL. Grafton Marina has beautiful facilities and the town is fantastic with beautiful wineries.
  2. I know this will only stir things up but what is the big deal about using the bathroom, that's what it is meant for. I don't understand why people say only in an emergency, you gotta go, you gotta go, they are built to be used. Let people use them and you will have a much more pleasant outing. My family and grandkids use ours all the time, I pump it out, clean it and we have many more hours on the boat. Going to the bathroom is part of life, it all cleans up. My 1996 is spotless, many people ask how old it is, cleaning a boat is a way for me to relax, let them use the bathroom and enjoy the boat the way it is meant to be used. Please don't go nuts with replies, I just can't imagine telling my guests that they have to hold it as long as possible. I even allow dock neighbors to use mine if they don't have one on their boat so they don't have to walk to the restrooms. Enjoy the new boat, go with 1/2" dock lines
  3. Any problems caused by using an incorrect cord become yours, would hate to see a fire started because of this. The problem is you could end up destroying others boats which none of us want to do. I would either use the proper cord or discontinue the use of an extension cord, they can fail for a number of reasons.
  4. I have a 1996 model with 7.4 Bravo III, love everything about the boat, really no problems at all except normal wear items. I did recently replace my reverse cycle a/c and heat. My biggest concern would be that it has sat so long, depends on a lot of variables. As far as price, sounds good but really needs a lot of preventive maintenance and how handy you are.
  5. I suggest replacing the fuel line from the tank to the engine, should be about 3-4' in length, you will spend a few deer and save many issues. The rubber hose dries out and let's black specks like pepper that will create many running issues. The rubber fuel line will also collapse and cause issues.
  6. If the panel is a Cruisair SMX II which it probably is, contact Flight Systems. Does it have a button labeled heat? If so and changing to heat does not turn it on, you may have a bad touchpad, they rebuild them or sell new ones. Also, the reversing valve may be stuck on the unit, they can walk you through what you need to do. Google Flight Systems
  7. Just replaced mine on my 1996 Signature 25 which is the 260. I had factory 7000 BTU and replaced it with Dometic 8000 BTU A/C and Heat unit. I have had it for 6 weeks and love it, much quieter than the original and does a perfect job, I strongly suggest this as they no longer make the 7000 models. Have had no problems with humidity. Yes, it is in the storage area of th act cabin.
  8. Meant to ask is it a Mercury,
  9. Kid it is a Mercury out drive the pilot hole is likely plugged up with debris, you will need to use a very small drill bit to clean it out by hand. You can YouTube the procedure.
  10. There is an ON/OFF switch inside the refrigerator, should be in the upper right hand corner. If you're running the boat engine you should be fine with it on. It should be on a deep cycle house battery and be fine for several hours is you leave it on.
  11. You can't fix stupid, and people wonder why we give them a bad rap!
  12. While doing all of that, replace the rubber fuel line from the tank to the engine. I had an issue a couple years ago and turned out to be that any load on the engine would cause the rubber fuel line to close off like a straw. End of my fuel problems and an inexpensive fix. My boat is a 1996 so the age of your fuel line is about the same as when I was having issues.
  13. Fire away and welcome!
  14. You should have 2 shorter legs, not sure if I would call it a bed but more of a lay flat sun lounger that gives you a flat area between the stern seat and the other seat.
  15. Ditto on Westland covers, I have their full mooring cover for my 260, although I don't use it much, it is great quality and fits great!
