  1. Don't feel bad, Have done many similar things.
  2. Agree with local shop. Also will get a better fit as original canvas has likely stretched and shrunk in areas.
  3. chaparral 2335

    Salt or fresh water usage also.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Agree with Iggy, most likely corrosion
  7. Welcome and enjoy the boat!!
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. I used to have the 1992 version of that boat. Check the drain at the corner of the sliding cabin door step down. I believe the hose runs along the aft cabin ceiling right next to the wall in a little boxed out section. My drain used to clog due to the small diameter and I was always cleaning it out.
  11. There are way too many people that get a boat and have absolutely ZERO training or education on the rules of boating. No excuses for not taking training when you think of the damage a non educated boater can do. I have seen far too many idiots out piloting boats.
  12. Welcome and safe boating!
  13. If they were working before engine work and not after, I would look for loose wire in engine bay. I have had a few items suddenly not work after engine work and they have always been a disconnected wire caused by the mechanic.
  14. Also, since this is in South Jersey, ask where it was during Sandy. I live in South Jersey and a lot of boats got damaged by Sandy and sold.
  15. I had the same OE black mat on my boat. Horrible!!!! Black footprints as well as staining your hands if you touched it. Took it off and replaced with SeaDek. Problem solved and cleaner boat!!
