    I rotate a Merc with a SEI (Alpha) lower every other year, no issues.

    Idiot me....anchor line caught on prop

    Wow I just did something similar. We were just relaxing in the middle of nowhere and I decided to throw out the front anchor. After 45 mins we decided to move and I forgot the anchor was out. As we started leveling out I looked to the right side of the boat and noticed a rope in the water, it didn't register for a few seconds then it hit me, duh.

    220SSi prop question

    I have a 2001 220 with the 5.7 alpha and run a 19 4 blade. We were wake-boarders, tubers, and skiers, now we just cruise. That prop works great for everything.

    Ramp Follies...

    That was horrible at the time but that's funny. After I retire all I need is a chair, cooler, and a boat ramp.

    I'm Outa Here...

    Funny is when I hear far left guy or far right guy proclaim their side has the correct vision. Ideas that benefit the people fail because either side cant let the other have a perceived victory.They will flip flop on any position if it benefits them or the party. Bush "read my lips" Obama "federal financing campaign" Gingrich "no fly zone" Kerry "for the war then against it" on and on. We are being hoodwinked by these people, well some are being hoodwinked.Term limits for all might help, but it never seems to be in the discussion. Maybe Obamacare could be fixed but it will never happen, they would have to work together, ha. I would love to hear a democrat agree with Trump on something, anything. Most politicians would switch sides today if it guaranteed they would be elected. It's like your favorite player that loses the game but laughs with the opponent afterwards, we care more then they do folks.

    Bow Running lights flicker on then go off

    I had the same issue, it was loose on the back of the switch. I had access behind the dash and just crimped the connector.

    We own a 2001 220ssi and love it. Having said that, I wish I had a 230 because of the enclosed head.

    235 SSI parts - Northwest area

    I have a 2001 220ssi that does not have a walk thru seat cushion, does it just sit in the empty space?

    3rd Annual Upper Chesapeake Raft-Up

    That's only for the select few.
  21. Yes, after doing this twice it's happening again. Save the date 7/22/2017 This year kindhearted Chap boaters have donated raft-up prizes. 1st prize- Meet and greet with Wingnut. You can ask him two questions (maybe three if you bring Yuengling), one focusing on boating, and one of your choice. A special Wingnut raft-up selfie. 2nd prize- Stand up or sit down ride on WhatNext's paddle board (with commemorative photo), also a very special selfie with Julie. 3rd prize- Cigar smoking session with Todddavid, including his signature sausage sandwich. Hope many Chaparral folks can join.
