    Parts

    You can try cecil marine and maybe get lucky or try ebay. factory set is about 3-400 bucks. Best bet is probably going to be to leave it or take it to a local shop to recreate.

    What Cruiser Would You Buy?

    You know I have 40ft fifth wheel and with slide out I might have 400 SQft. while the trailer is very nice for weekends or even a week. I don't see living in something of that size permanently. The walls start to move in. really the size really isn't the huge concern, its not having house size appliances, crappers, showers etc that RV size and quality stuff gets very old after a while.

    I like them too. Couple critiques though, window on the side is awesome but ruins the flow. Also everything on top fly bridge etc think needs to be dropped some in height maybe 4-5in

    Fuel in Oil

    had fuel issues on my GXI here are some things to check. Is the Fuel pressure regulator bad, its a round thing next to the throttle body on the right, take the clip off and pull it off, if there is screen it might be clogged, if it is clean it. Next Check the IAC. Lastly get a fuel pressure tester, on the GXI there is a nipple on the pump and on top on the rail. The pump pressure should be like around 10 if I remember right, the high side should be like 52-60 at idle. Hatem might be onto something, but theres a good chance the injectors just weren't the problem. Lastly, maybe you don't have a fuel problem could be spark. I would inspect all the plugs, replace if necessary. If you don't know when they were replaced Id spend the 50-60 bucks and replaced the cap/rotor, plugs and wires.

    definitely better, but you still deal with ski ropes in the way and climbing in from the side. Mehh not paying 30-40k for each motor,

    Not sure cost me 15 bucks to do. I know OBs can be easier and they are easier for annual maint type items.

    its a rage. As I outlined before there are some advantages. Where it really all started was the center counsels. which in that application for that function I get it. Fountain which by the way is back is putting them on their 35s or 38s lightnings now, talk about barf. Beyond looks I still go back to the noise, smell, and the fact you just ruined any sort of fun off the back of your boat.

    Ugly boat for sure, but I like to buy things off function too. Like I said it looks like cold weather boat, if so I get it, but again don't see what your doing on it besides driving around. Looks they dumped a travel trailer on top of a center counsel.

    Problem with that boat is I don't get what it does. Wont be good for fishing or water sports or people outside of the boat. Maybe a cold weather boat.

    Wakeboard Graphic for 2005 220 SSi

    3 years ago I got lucky and got graphics for an 02 265ssi. After talking to Cecil they only make these things for like 5-7 years after they are made, I got lucky as they just happened to have one. Chances are you wont find the graphics and will have to go without or have a local sign shop recreate it or make something different.

    Need help with 310 Signature! a variety of issues.

    I'm not one to judge and who knows the situation. With that said it happens all the time with 3-400k houses by both people that have money and those that dont. What I have come to find out is frankly some people don't care and some people have more money than sense.

    - AC would clean real well and try again - Generator probably going to have call somebody -gauges I would pull a few off and check them for corrosion and check all breakers, and lastly follow the wires all the way back to the engine checking connections and for corrosion. Could try replacing one gauge but chances are they don't all work its not gauges. For fuel and trim. Trim is probably the black puck on the out drive, cheap part to replace, fuel might be the sender in the tank. -Seats if they are that bad find a local shop to give you new skins, local shops usually do very good and are way less then factory skins -Smelly water they offer sanatizers to flush. or I would just dump a bunch of bleach in there run it through everything then let it sit with bleach for 24 hours and flush multiple times.

    I get the outboard thing, to me though its much like the 6.5 creedmore craze in hunting though. Outboards can go shallower are more efficient etc I get that. The big buts are they are loud, smell( I know they have improved), and while they save space in the boat, have fun doing water sports and getting in and around those OBs on the swim deck. Lastly blow a power head or anything else on one those your going to be out a cool 20-30k a piece. Blow a big block, your back on the water for 5k or less.
