  3. 2006 235ssi 5.0vp duo prop top speed 48 on speedo Just looking for information about them. School me on trim tabs . Also adding a extended swim platform
  4. Where did you buy your trim tabs from .?
  5. Look on youtube there is a video from Jamestown doing exactly what you are asking. They fab a shelf in anchor locker for motor and wires cut hole in bow install the whole deal doesn't look like a bad upgrade. Maby even a diy task .
  6. I have factory f5 duo prop rpm is about 4400 -4800 it's my first real boat of size the swim platform is added to prevent bumping in to the out drive or prop . We like to swim or to hang out at local sandbar . Seams to pop up on plane fine to me . I would like help in lake michigan with 3 foot waves the waves don't roll one direction it is like a x pattern chop. wouldn't tabs help with bow slap In this . My ideal speed is 25 in this chop just all over the place trying to stay on top of waves to prevent bow pounding and bow rides high rather than splitting the wave it seams to ride over and drop . I guess I can't cut like a go fast fountain plain and simple.

  8. I can tell you that chaparral does put profit before safty just Google volvo penta fuel pump problems. It's a ticking bomb fuel pump gets so hot it starts to scream . Because of them painting the inside of it . Paint brakes down in gas and plugs the system. From 2006 on . In 3years I have replaced my new fuel pump 3 times $1100.00 tired of excuses it's plain greed this product should have a safety recall.
  9. Just my luck I ordered a extended swim platform for a Chaparral 235 but they mistakenly made me a 2330 /2335 so it's your lucky day they are making me the correct one and I will return it to mfg it's two tone white /Yellow could repaint to match yours or they will have to scrap a brand new esp
  10. Again I purchased a new swimplatform the mfg made the wrong one that i have it fits only the 2330 or the 2335 . I though I could help out a fellow boater and asked what they would sell there mastake for .she half price 1100.00 . New Everything is included you pay for the shipping from wisconsin or I ship it back to them . The End
  11. I don't know your welcome to come by and we can see if you are near by
  12. Fits 95 to 99 2330 or 2335 half price 1100 .00 Pick up from Racine WI
  13. Talk to your car mechanic . Or your friends mechanic it's similar to brakes on a car and the bearings to sorry your having all the trouble if you were close by I do it for you.
  14. 2006 235 ssi the I cracked it bad while it was open I fell into the cover it is the fiberglass lid on the back port side. looking for a replacement thanks cecil marine has them but ouch on the price. There has to be a deal on a almost 12yrs old boat part at least I hope so chaparral part sp65 .
  15. Tape news paper a round the areas you have any entry points no gussing
  16. I think you are referring to drum style brakes you want to adjust the tension of the brake pads to the drum with the adjustment wheel through the brake backer adjustment hole with a flat head screw . The brakes are over tight or wrapped now . I would take tire off remove drum and back off adjuster and clean up everything with a can of brake clean the adjuster comes apart for cleaning the hole in the backer is for fine tuning if you need to tighten them up . I set mine so drum dosent drag while installing drum over pads to get start fresh I would also look at the bearings if you got them that hot they might need replacement look for coloring from heat . Much easier to do at this point than on the road. Pm me if I can be of any more help
