  1. You can check out the brochure archives in the info center here on the forum. http://forum.chaparralboats.com/index.php?/topic/5328-chaparral-brochure-archive/ Also, Google your model and look at pics. Posting pics here is a pain.
  2. I fully support trained personnel properly wearing appropriate PPE in the appropriate setting. The problem is those wearing something they have been lead to believe keeps them safe. I still don't see the data. Where is the data showing this is effective in the population? Did you even read the abstract of the linked article? "Further work is needed to establish the efficacy of cloth masks at blocking expiratory particles for speech and coughing at varied intensity and to assess whether virus-contaminated fabrics can generate aerosolized fomites, but the results strongly co
  3. Point me to the data that shows how many were infected by those not wearing masks as well as the data showing that you cannot infect someone if you are wearing a mask. I can't seem to find it.
  4. Assuming the original was 4140 and the aftermarket one is 304, mechanically the materials are similar enough in this application to not be a problem. Now corrosion wise, I am concerned it is a matter of swapping one problem for another. The assumed 4140 O.E. shaft corrodes on the seal journal and damages the seal over time. The concern with the 304 is the potential galvanic corrosion between the shaft and the aluminum gimbal ring, especially when submerged in saltwater. This joint is already a problem area for B3 drives, adding galvanic corrosion to the mix won't make it any better. This
  5. Congratulations! Looks like a nice clean boat. I was going to ask you about the swivel pin, but it looks like it has already recieved the merc fix, just keep the bolts torqued.
  6. I think this is going to require a local canvas shop to not only custom fit it, but align the snaps to the boat.
  7. I would tow it for you if it wasn't 1000 miles away.
  8. let me know if you decide to sell...narrow beam 19 footer is getting smaller every year as the family continues to grow.
  9. Yes. I use them and when i loose them (leave them sitting on the swim platform and drive away) I then use a strap attached to the tow hook until i can get another set. Peace of mind knowing the drive won't be bouncing off the pavement.
  10. The '93 2250 is a cuddy cabin bow design. You can check out additional info here: http://forum.chaparralboats.com/publications/brochures/1993.pdf
  11. I tow regularly several hundred miles at highway speed with my snap on bow and cockpit covers made of sunbrella. I find either "puffed up bubble" (pressurized) condition or the sucked in (vacuum) condition to be just fine. The problem is when you don't have either condition and the cover is just fluttering to be the most damaging to the cover and whatever it is attached to and possibly hitting.
  12. You still have a sea water pump with the same impellor pushing the same water through the closed loop liquid to liquid heat exchanger, so the failure mode is still present. Not enough, only about 620 hrs, but it is still sitting during the season full of raw water. Newer "full" closed systems include the manifolds into the closed loop so that would help, but the risers are still being cooled via raw water. I didn't get the impression that the OP was going to go that far in the conversion as it's a little more involved than just adding a heat exchanger.
