  1. Congrats Brick We finally moved to the lake and moved the boat to our dock this past August. If you are in the area give me a shout.
  2. The squeak is not from the tensioner it's from the little plastic pulley. I have done it 2 times. The noise is why I replaced it also. The last replacement I just added a little bit of lubricant and since then it's has been very quiet.
  3. Gents, The original poster sounds like he wants to use to use the existing transducers in his boat. With that said if he named it correctly it will be either the Simrad or Lowrance.
  4. Simrad or Lowrance
  5. When you see rust around stainless screws that is called crevice corrosion. That will happen in both fresh and saltwater. Google it to learn more.
  6. One of the things you need to keep in mind is the smaller flybridges 35 footish are very top heaving since their height is not proportioned the length of the vessel.
  7. If I recall correctly there IS supposed to be a wire that is NOT hooked up to the alternator on a Volvo. I believe it’s orange. Google it to confirm specifically from a TSB from Volvo. It also might have some black electrical tape on it.
  8. Chaparral used the Merc version for both Volvo and Merc applications.
  9. I have always done this.
  10. Have you cleaned the sea strainer?
  11. Have you priced them yet? They are big bucks!! Cheaper to get a good battery powered spot light.
  12. If you have Amazon Prime they have another benefit called Amazon Prime Photos.
  13. +1, We are only a few weeks into summer.
  14. Iggy, This has me very interested. I did add a fuel flow sender for my Simrad GO7XSE. Which Volvo engines are you running? I would like to get more engine data. Was the company easy to deal with? Do you have any pics of the connections? How long did it take for them to ship the cable?
  15. Anti siphon valve?
