    Help on getting to know the new boat

    Iggy - Great ideas. I have 2009 290 Sig. It is raining today, so little project. I am adding led blue and white lights in the outside arch. I am adding two more tvs, one outside and one in the back berth. I like house battery idea, I will have to see about that especially because my boat does not have a generator. I thought about adding one, but we already want a bigger boat and I don't think it will be worth the cost. Love this forum and the great ideas!

    Too big a boat for a newbie?

    All great suggestions. My wife and I also are turning 50 and just got a 2009 Signature 290 last Saturday. It is 31' with twin I/O. I couldn't wait to take it out, we got out of our dock in Southern NJ with a near miss, and went for a 3 hour ride. I pulled up to an open fuel dock next door and got my salesman to dock it because I did not want to hit any boats. I got plenty of suggestions from dock mates. I hired a captain for a 3 hour class next weekend and I would recommend that because the 20 minutes on the phone he told tons of great suggestions. I would also echo everyone's suggestions that slow and steady around boats and docks are the way to go. Thank god I was always going slow and steady. Best of luck!
  8. The full mattress fit perfectly. Thanks for all the help!
  9. Well, I bought one of each. I will find out Saturday as that is when we get the boat. Thanks for all the input!
  10. Thanks everyone. Looks like we will get a queen for the V berth and full size for the aft cabin. We have a lot to learn and figure out, I was also guessing this made it easier to fit sheets, etc. Happy boating! Phil
  11. I just purchased a 290 Chaparral 2009. I was wondering if you can put a foam mattress or memory form over the cushions for sleeping? If so, what size twin, full, queen? Thanks in advance. Phil
