We've had our 256 SSI since 2006 and love it. We stay on the North side of the lake mostly and just found the owners forum this week. I would love to find some other Chaparral owners to connect with for boating and to gain insight on local shops, etc. My boat is in dry storage at the Boat Rack mostly or stored at my community dock if we are out for the whole weekend. My favorite place to drop anchor is up by the state park.
