    Fresh Water Plumbing with PEX?

    Travel trailers, etc have bypass valves at the water heater for the same reason. Pull the drain plug at bottom of water heater, close the valves, add antifreeze (but not into water heater). My camper uses the water pump to circulate the AF directly from the gallon container.

    Beginner Advice - 1992 Chaparral 2200SLC

    Plenty of folks will put lipstick on a pig to pretty it up. She looks nice, but at that age due diligence is required, especially if she's lived outdoors. First time used boat buyers often aren't sure what to watch for; that's where some of us come in . . . I've purchased a 1981 and a 1978 in my past . . . The '78 Browning Aerocraft Monte Carlo II is in the background here . . . helluva nice boat

    Pink Mold on stitching seams

    yet another H2O and 'pinking upholstery' . . . been at least six of these posted on this forum by my rough WAG since the advent of the model line. On another note, is anyone else bored with runabout interiors these days?

    Volvo Penta Forward Drive

    I've surfed a few times. Mostly behind a 24' Axis, and once behind a 21' Mastercraft. The Axis wake was certainly larger. I'll say this: it's easier for an amateur to ride a large wake than a small one. On the other hand, with enough ballast, a 23' Chap with forward drive may create a decent wake. I'd wanna try it first. WRT FFD, be sure you run on clean lakes. Also remember the boat will sit higher on the trailer, with a higher overall height.

    Hello from East TN

    Welcome! Looks like a nice, well cared for boat. Tennessee has beautiful boating, though I've only been on Dale Hollow, Norris, Center Hill and Percy Priest. Wasn't crazy about Percy Priest though. Would love to see more of TN's waters.

    Can the 230 or 250 Suncoast's handle the ocean?

    An honest assessment from your dealer. There has been a topic or two here from Suncoast owners that were disappointed with its' open water capabilities.

    sking behind vortex boats

    Single or twin engine Vortex? With single it'll take longer than stern drive and certainly longer than direct drive.
