  1. Just have no idea where to start to look 2006 volvo penta duo prop 5.0 stalled out on plane . Restarted was on way in and killed again . Just like the key was turned off each time . Had to get a tow cause wouldn't restart third time all happened in 10 mins
  2. Just got time to look over the boat to see if I could find out what killed the motor. First thing I found was the alternator plug was disconnected . Would this kill the engine and not restart. It turned over fine . I do remember. Turning on both battery once it stalled but it never turned over slow like the battery was drained. I think the boat would run till the battery was drained to kill it . So I just not sure that is all of my problems. Will look for more .tomorrow

  22. 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.

  24. 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.
  25. 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
