  1. My 2000 280 SSI was totalled as a result of IRMA and I have been looking at the newer model Chappy's as a replacement. I have narrowed my choices down to the 284 Sunestra or the 287 SSX. The SSX is basically the same hull as my 280. I loved the ride of the boat. It was solid on the water, but handled like a much smaller boat. I was hoping that owners of each model could offer pros and cons. Any comments, are welcomed. Sincerely,
  2. I don't know much about them. Looking at the WestSounds site, it looks like they are their entry level amp series, but that is about all I can tell you about it.
  3. I have a 280SSI. I believe that you need two ACR's. One for each of the start batteries. I am no expert, but I have my two start batteries on one switch and my two house batteries on another switch. I have an ACR between each of the start batteries and the house bank. I ran mine exactly like the diagram provided by Blue Sea Systems for their ACR duel engine set up. I don't have pics, but will try to get some.
  4. I have 3 wet sounds Syn 4 amps, 6 of the SW 650's, 2 SW 850's and two cheap 10" subs in a ported box. Everything is controlled by the WetSounds EQ. My system is a little over the top to say the least. If I had it to do over again, I would eliminate the EQ and go with one of the higher end Fusion head units. I like JLA and have nothing negative to say about them other than they are expensive. I listened to the JLA and Wetsounds side by side. Hard to tell the difference. I am very happy with my WetSounds and recommend it to everyone who asks. I agree with those previously who said that you would end up with a better system and spend less money if you add amp, sub, tower speakers, etc. later.
  5. I have 6 of the Wet Sounds SW-650 which is thier salt water version of the 650. They are very good speakers.
  6. I have friends who have the rtic coolers and love them. I went with canyon. Made in the USA with a lifetime warranty. Also performed very well in head to head comparisons. More expensive than rtic, but less than yeti.

  8. Cecil Marine and look under Chaparral Boat Parts.
  9. I love my BIII's. They really help with hole shot and overall performance. I have never had an A1 so I cannot compare the two, but what I can say is that the BIII's really help my boat perform like it is a lot smaller than it is. No disrespect intended to the poster above, but I repowered my boat w/ vortech 350's last summer and had a noticeable decrease in power from the 350 mags. I lost about 4-5 mph on the top end. Was very disappointed at first, but they run like a dream and are very reliable. I had to remind myself that I wasn't entering any races any time soon. 55mph is still not bad for a 27'6 boat, but 60 was better.
  10. I was having similar issues and was planning the check valves etc......I decided to start using only ethanol free fuel and the problem went away. Since making that change, I have not had the issue. Hope this helps.
  11. The guy was an idiot. The only time I have seen them used was in very shallow water so those walking around wouldn't stub their toes on them.
  12. Outnumbered because I have a wife, three daughters and two grandaughters. I am the only man in my family and I am definitely outnumbered.
  13. It wasn't difficult. The old tach had a sticker on back which labelled the posts. Took about an hour.
  14. Well the heat finally got to my tachometer and the face fell off of it about a week or so ago. I did some research and discovered that I would have to purchase a new gauge, pigtails for the new gauge and do a little bit of wiring. I contacted Jason at Faria and he pointed me in the right direction as far as what gauge to purchase. In addition, he also sent me a wiring diagram for the gauge. I went with the TCC010 because I don't need the hour meters built in. Jason referred me to Great Lakes Skipper to purchase the pigtails and I contacted Joe at Cecil Marine for the purchase of the gauge. I received excellent customer service from all three companies and I wanted to give them kudos. Hopefully this post may help someone who is having similar issues. I attached pics of the old gauge and the new gauge with the starboard engine running. I am a happy camper. Thanks Joe and Jason!!!!! Happy Boating!!!
