    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.

    2014 Sunesta taking on water when cruising

    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.
  6. Sounds like a great dealer. Having a good dealer to back you up makes boating a better experience! Good luck to ya!

    What does this wire go to?

    I can’t help u with your problem, but you should start a new topic with your problem. You will get a better response and not confuse your problem and the OP.

    Confused !

    Hard to say, could be many things including amount of trim, water and air conditions. Keep a eye on it if you think there are problems, but enjoy it all the same

    Towing tube from 264

    I bought the Airhead Live Wire 2. It is a 2 seater that does the sitting or you reverse it for kneeling. Have had 2 adults and any combination of adults and 2 grandchildren on it with no problem. I hook it to the one ski tow hook on back of the Sunesta 244.

    I am not familiar with a Volvo outdrive, but on a Mercruiser they are on the lower drive.

    Gas Cap for 2008 190 SSI

    Have you tried Cecil Marine? They are good to check out.

    Boat Cover

    I have a 2008 Sunesta, and have no issues with either the bow or cockpit cover. I do re-waterproof them every year with the Starbrite product, and in the winter they are stored away as the boat is shrink wrapped.

    She’s buying her first boat...

    Really great looking boat. Don’t have any experience in those waters, but it looks like a great family boat! Good luck to you and welcome to the forum.

    To Forward Face or not, that is the question...

    A lot would depend on how the boat is used, trailed or at a dock and depth and condition of the body of eater you would be in. I would think stumps or rocky bottom would not be ideal for forward facing drive. personally I would go with traditional but then I am old school.

    Do you know which engine and outdrive the boat has?

    Boat Maintenance Kit

    I have the marina do all maintenance in the fall and spring. They do a water test of the boat when they launch in the spring to make sure there are no issues. I carry only a few basic tools, my cell phone, credit card and BOATUS unlimited towing membership card.

    I know I said I wouldn't use the head but....

    I bought the boat with the head being one of the required items. With the Admiral on board, 2 daughter-in-laws and 2 granddaughters, it is a necessity and meant to be used. Makes a day on the water much less stressful for me!
