  1. Agree with White and stripe of your color choice. Much easier maintenance!!
  2. Merry Christmas and Happy New Years to all! And to those in the cold weather states here’s to waiting for the first launch!!
  3. If you are bottom painting your hull, are you also putting anti fouling paint on your outdrive. That would determine how to give an answer.
  4. I agree with Chap243. Hire someone with the proper equipment to move it. Safer for you and everyone else on the road around you!
  5. Run , don’t walk, away from this one. Time and money bucket
  6. I had to do that to a previous boat to use it until I replaced the hot water heater. No issues just remember where the hoses go when rehooking heater back up
  7. Don't feel bad, Have done many similar things.
  8. Agree with local shop. Also will get a better fit as original canvas has likely stretched and shrunk in areas.
  9. chaparral 2335

    Salt or fresh water usage also.
  10. I totally understand and agree. I don't think it is asking too much for them to have the common courtesy to return calls. Being an independent, I would think it would be more important to keep in touch with his customers. I would have to say, based on your experience, I would have already hauled it to the new guy to fix. Good Luck with your boat and the ultimate goal of having it repaired correctly.
  11. Best thing to do is get rid of mechanics like that. I have also had a few work on my boat that I refused to let them get near it again. The tough part is having to pay a good mechanic to fix the bad guys work. Been there and it is a hard pill to swallow. I think you are on the right path.
  12. Agree with Iggy, most likely corrosion
  13. Welcome and enjoy the boat!!
  14. I don't burn thru my gas very fast, so when I store it I add stabilizer and have never had any problems. I feel it is a small price to pay for piece of mind. But like everything else, everyone has their own opinion. Do what makes you feel comfortable and don't look back.
  15. I took off the factory black rubber swim pad on my 2008 Sunesta 244 and replaced with SeaSek in Mica color faux teak. Much cooler, more comfortable and no more annoying black marks all over boat from the OEM pad.
