  1. Thanks for the info. My tow capacity is around 6300. It will be very close.
  2. Thanks for the info
  3. I have both but haven't trailered yet and wanted to consider starting. Thanks.
  4. Hi all - trying to figure out weight for a 2005 236 ssi and whether a new Yukon can pull it factoring in gas, gear, a few passengers on a tandem trailer, etc. Anyone else in a similar situation?

  6. Hi everyone, I'm looking into investing in a trailer for a 2005 chaparral ssi. Boat is in excellent condition and looking to trailer throughout the southeastern US (Florida, etc). Thoughts on manufacturers and types to accommodate travel throughout the region? Thanks.
  7. Hello everyone - I am seeking feedback on locations to bring my 2005 SSI to the Fort Lauderdale area. Family and I are relocating this summer and I would love to bring my boat with us. Not sure if this is a big deal or not but my boat has always been on a lake in fresh water only. Not looking for ocean use but perhaps the intercoastal? Thank you for the feedback in advance.
  8. I need to replace a bad prop on my 236ssi (model year 2005). I would like to get one that is ideal for getting on plane and speed for watersports such as wakeboarding. Can I get some recommendations as to what to use? Thanks!
  9. Hello all, I have a 2005 Chaparral 236 SSI. We considered installing a wakeboard tower to the boat but decided against it mainly due to the cost. I have heard that there is something similar to a boat tripod that can be setup towards the back of the boat where the wakeboard rope can be tethered to. Has anyone heard of this and if so share there experiences and where to find such a product? Thank you.
  10. Hi everyone, I've posted a few questions out here as I'm new to boating and got some great feedback. I purchased a pre-owned 2005 236ssi with a merc 5.7L engine. Overall the boat is great and we have enjoyed our first season. I got the boat at a great price partly because the cosmetics of the boat need some work. The boat has some very noticeable scratches which we haven't been unable to buff out. We also love watersports and are looking to add a tower. The question I have is about how much should I invest into a boat that is going on 9 years old. I'm not sure of the useful life for this model but figure that as long as the engine and hull are in good condition then we should be able to enjoy for years to come. Bottom line is that does it make sense to re-paint (gel coat) the boat again and invest in a tower (we are honing in on Sampson). We appreciate the feedback.
  11. Hello all, I bought a pre-owned 236 SSI which had an 8 lb. anchor left with it. Is this right size for my boat? It seems to work ok when we need it but was Curious what other folks are using. Thanks!
  12. I have a 2005 236 SSI that I'm looking to modify and add a tower to for water skiing, wakeboarding, etc. Does anyone have recommendations for a reputable after market dealer I can look at? Appreciate any feedback and ideas on this. Thanks
  13. Hi I'm a proud new owner of a 2005 236 SSI. We bought pre-owned and still learning the ins and outs. One question I'm seeking help on is how to setup the sun deck on the bow of the boat. We appear to have all the necessary cushions to place but we are having difficulty setting up the deck. Is there any online guide or guidance here we can reference? Thanks
