  1. Hi Im sure this is an easy one, but I cant seem to find it. My boat has a depth alarm, and I can set it to certain ft. I was curious, if I set it is the distance calculated from the bottom of the boat or the bottom of the prop?
  2. Hi Anyone in CO have good recommendations for dealers who service Chaparral.
  3. All...... please forgive my newbie ignorance. Question.... When shifting from neutral to forward or reverse I have a good clunk almost sound. I assume that is just it engaging but thought I would ask. And.... on my waverunners they say to never go fast in reverse. What speed or how fast can one go in reverse in a boat? So far I've been lucky and not needed to. But curious to just know. Thanks
  4. All. Sorry I was not clear. The metal pin is the one that you attach the bimini from/poles to the arch on the boat. Does that help?
  5. Hi All We just tried to use our bimini tops for the first time. Noticed that a couple of the metal pins are broken/missing. Any idea how to replace and where to purchase them from? I noticed they seem to be riveted on and not screwed on.
  6. That is awesome, my wife also missed our boat not having this option as well. Wonder if I can do that our current boat.

  8. All........ I was told (by dealer) this ladder should never be used out of the water. Of course if you could use it that would help while loading the boat on dry land. This past weekend I ran across MANY who were using there's while not in the water. Anyone have thoughts or experience?

  10. Seems the issue Im having is the arch on the boat. Cant find a cover made for it. Just have to have one custom made everyone keeps telling me.
  11. Hi...... we bought the same boat late last year and think we got a good deal on ours. Barely got to our 10 hour mark but love the boat. We debated between the 226 and 246 and so far dont have 2'itis........yet. Ours has the Volvo since that is what that dealer ordered them with. I've heard pros and cons about Volvo and Merc so guess its personal preference. Our first boat and so far its a fine motor. tomnjo...... where did you find that ladder? We also wanted a bow ladder as well and miss that in our 226 model.
  12. Question. Boat is wrapped and parked in outdoor storage. Should I do anything for the trailer or tires to help avoid winter issues or wear and tear over winter?
  13. Good info. I have done nothing yet to the trailer so any input or suggestions is appreciated.
  14. Batteries are out. Trim is up. Boat is shrink wrapped and so is the trim as well. My first winter, here's hoping it goes well and no issues in the summer
