    Use caution with products containing bleach

    that''s good input. Yes, makes sense, the bleach in the "Mold Armor" oxidized the gelcoat. I hit it with 2 levels of compound, polish & wax and it barely shows now.

    277 Overheating Issues

    because of the design of a boat, ie: pulling in raw seawater, you would not want something other than flexible rubber. You always have the risk of sucking up debris that would destroy a rigid impeller.

    what engine do you have? Merc or Volvo? Merc recommends the impeller change every 3 years. I don't know about Volvo.

    I've seen a few of the Vortex models on the lake. They are definitely very cool looking. I like the styling and the graphics. I'm not a fan of jet boats but the Vortex line is nice

    Nasty Sewer Smell - Jabsco Manual Pump Head

    I remember my buddies boat had that same type of system. Everytime he pumped the hand pump the entire area would stink like a sewer. Didn't matter how much deodorant he put in the toilet. I don't know the solution but his always stunk.

    I wanna say Chaparral is also in GA. Not 100% sure tho. We spoke to our Aunt/Uncle & cousins who live in coastal NC. Aunt & Uncle live on Emerald Isle, NC. All their homes are OK with minimal damage. However, the flooding is very bad and the beach took a major hit. Massive erosion. It's going to be a long clean up and recovery!
  7. Learned some lessons this season. 1st one was with StarBrite black streak remover. It does a great job removing the black streaks from the boat but it also bleaches out the gelcoat. Meaning you can see exactly where it was sprayed and where it dripped down the boat. 2nd lesson was using Mold Armor to remove the green mold from in and around the rubrail. I now have bleached out drips going down the side of the boat on the black gelcoat! I tried compounding it with no success. Hoping the sun will fade the stains away!!

    Help with vacuflush and fresh water winterizing plans

    I actually think that's not a bad idea to pull the tank out and thoroughly clean it. Would help prevent the stink from getting bad. But I do like Toddler does. Pump out at the marina. Drain water tank. Fill water tank with 2 gallons of A/F. Fill toilet bowl 2-3x with A/F and flush. Run sink until all lines are filled with pink. Done. I have been using Clorox toilet bowl cleaner for 10 years without any problems. I also put a splash of bleach in my water tank everytime I fill it.

    1994 25.5 SSX

    Looks really clean. 400 hours on a 454 is nothing. Low price for a big boat too.

    Pumpout fitting

    mine is threaded for the cap. But you don't need any special fitting. No need to thread anything in because most places have the tapered rubber fitting. Wilsonville charges $25

    Pumpout fitting

    I go to Wilsonville. They have a super strong pump. The fitting is just a rubber tapered fitting that he jams into the hole. It seals and evacuates my tank in 2 minutes.
