  1. Hi not new to boating but i have been out of the game for a bit. i bought a beautiful 2004 265 ssi w/8.1 bravo 3. i keep it in fresh water about four months a year. My question is the out drive is pitting real bad. i checked to see if there was any current by my dock and i could not find any. no power any where. it has new anodes. i cant find any place to buy the lower half. is there a way to restore my bottom section. can someone find me a place that can do that kind of work, i live in GA and the boat is in lanier. thanks in advance Richie.

  3. Thanks for all the info. sorry about the cap lock's. I was a little excited.
  4. OK I AM GOING TO BE 50 THIS SEPTEMBER, SO MAYBE THIS IS MY MID LIFE CRISSIS. I JUST FOUND A 2004 265 SSI THATS BEEN IN STORAGE FOR THE PAST TWO YEARS WITH A 120 HOURS ON IT SCANED THE COMPUTER TO CONFIRM. I LIVE IN GA ABOUT A 45 MIN FROM A BIG LAKE AND ABOUT 6 HOURS FROM THE GULF. I GREW UP IN LONG ISLAND AND HAVE BEEN AROUND BOATS AND OWNED BOATS BEFORE. I VE BEEN HERE IN GA FOR THE PAST 20 YEARS AND HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT GETTING A BOAT THE WHOLE TIME. WELL I BOUGHT IT AFTER MANY MONTHS OF RESEARCH, THE BOAT DOES NOT HAVE SURE POWER HOOK UP BUT I THINK I COULD INSTALL IT, I WILL BE USING THE BOAT ON THE LAKE AND WE SPEND TWO WEEKS IN THE GULF. I LOVE THE EASE OF UP-KEEP FOR THE BOAT. I LOVE THE FACT THAT YOU DONT HAVE TO PULL THE OUT DRIVE TO REPLACE THE IMPELLAR FOR THE RISERS.. THE BOAT HAS A 8.1 WITH A BRAVO 3. SO IF ANYONE'S GOT SOME GOOD ADVISE PLS FEEL FREE TO GIVE IT. WE WANT TO LEAVE IT IN A WET SLIP, IT DOES NOT HAVE BOTTOM PAINT SO I DONT KNOW IF IT SHOULD HAVE IT, IT'S A FRESH WATER LAKE. I WILL PULL IT OUT FROM TIME TO TIME TO CLEAN IT SO I DONT THINK IT WILL NEED ANY. WELL I HOPE ALL A GREAT DAY BOATING. THX FOR LETTING ME POST. RITCHIE
