  1. Guys, As mentioned above I had some issues yesterday that left me stranded on the lake. FIrst off it is a 1998 Chaparral 205LE with the 5.0 Mercruiser in it. After having my Fiance and my doggie on the tube! yes the dog tubed, i turned off the engine to get them back into the boat. Upon restart and turning of the key I got nothing..... No clicking from the solenoid, no starting, nothing. It led me to believe something was wrong with the ignition switch or the starter. For the life of me i could not get it started and had to be towed in. I pulled the boat out and headed straight to advanced
  2. It is a 5.0 merc and an alpha 1. I do have a 4 blade SS prop and a 4 blade aluminum prop. Mostly will be cruising, tubing, and some wakeboarding. I think my first steps will be adding new speakers, sound system, and then a swim platform
  3. Hello everyone, Glad to see there is a forum for chaparral's. I am new to owning a boat and my first is A 1998 Chaparral 205LE. Got a great price for it and am having lots of fun. It was very well taken care of. Has a 5.0 in it. Hope to contribute what I can to this forum. Most of my experience comes from Automotive. I have a 2012 Camaro 2SS 45th that I have done quite a few things to. It puts down 450 to the wheels. What that means is that I will want to tinker with this engine and see what I can do to get more power. I GPS'd it the other day and it hit 50+mph. I am not interested in more
