    1981 restoration

    I personally would walk away. I would not trust a transom cut for an outboard vs one built for one. Seems like way too much work and investment of time and money when other boats are out there. Just my opinion

    Newb with a few questions

    For any Chaparral parts try Cecil Marine.
  3. I have a tether on my waste cap also, so it doesn’t fall overboard when you unscrew it. Try gently pulling the tether and it should pull out of the fill opening. The end is like a spring that expands and holds the tether in place.

    19 H2O OEM carpeting, all the same snap locations?

    I have a 2008 Sunesta 244 and bought new carpet last year from Cecil Marine, original Chaparral carpet that was in boat. The snaps were not installed however the back of the carpet was pre punched thru the backing to mark where the snaps go. They all lined up with the original with the exception of 2 snaps. I didn’t think that was bad.

    Vortex Issues

    I have a 244 Sunesta, and it has the same standard marine battery 1000 cca as each of the two batteries. They were just replaced by the dealer at the beginning of the season and that is what they installed.

    Sounds like a great ending!! Good luck and hope that is the end of the water.

    Vortex Issues

    The low battery voltage can cause a variety of other errors to pop up. I know on my car a low battery causes many others to pop up, which clear after battery is fixed. Check the battery and either charge or replace and see what errors remain.

    It looks like a water temp sender that is screwed into water passage. Most likely the sender is leaking and needs replacement. I have had it happen with oil senders but notwster.
  14. Sounds like a great dealer. Having a good dealer to back you up makes boating a better experience! Good luck to ya!

    You made the smart choice going bigger. You have the bsyhroom and have already had your first attack of 2 footitis. Great looking boat and good luck to ya!
