  6. 224 is fine, we are a family of 4 and always have friends out - but, I'd take that 2010 244 if I was you....negotiate a better price ($35K), older boat!

    Power for 227 SSX

    I have a 224 with the 5.0gxi motor - 270hp I believe - mare than enough power for wakeboard, towing etc.

    Chicago Boat Show

    The company was trying to create a product the public didn’t yet know it wanted, said Chaparral senior vice president Mike Fafard. “That’s the advantage we have in building fishing boats [with the Robalo line] and sport boats, and seeing them grow inland,” said Fafard. “I think it’s an indicator people want something functional.” Not a fan....enjoy!

    Can a TACO pull my 244 Sunesta?

    No it won't - will go down the leaf stops, and then after you get going, try to stop! Taca's doesn't like to stop, even with no load!

    Hull Advice - Disappointed

    I agree with a storm damaged boat - sent off to Europe, sell as new!

    Is it bad luck not to name your boat?

    It's bad luck when you name the boat - do something illegal - and someone reports the boat by name!

    Rudeness on the lake -- How to handle it?

    Put on your scuba gear, swim up and drill a hole in the hull - watch them sink!

    Gear Oil Leak

    Don't you have to split it anyway to replace the impellor - replace the seals too, and you should be good to go!
