  1. Lol, dang, I was going to ask too. Hey, Jime, don't worry about storage! Just sell it to me!! ok, I suppose or to Dan or me. Lol
  2. Yeah it looks pretty brutal out there. I have seen some at greatlakesskipper.com between 400-440 ea. B.O.A.T is literally the most accurate acronym I have ever heard.
  3. Hijack question....does this help with vapor lock that some other boat/engine combo's are prone to as well?
  4. My google-fu turns up that the thermostat spec is 160, so 165-175 is probably reasonable.
  5. Ah yeah, Starboard! I knew I had read a brand on here somewhere. Looks like its relatively similar to HDPE (Rather than UHMW), too, especially if not in the sun. Sorry, I wasn't super clear in what I meant. I was thinking replace both helm seats with models from a newer Chap, not trying to find a new-old-stock one. But a canvas shop to modify the existing one to be shorter whilst repairing That might make mama the happiest.

  7. I actually just saw one! I'll go see if I can dig er up again.
  8. So this weekend a friend of ours sat down awkwardly on the Admiral's seat, and it broke the bolster portion off. It looks like it may have been coming for a while, as the screws holes are a bit stripped, and some bits are cracked. So obviously this will need to be fixed.....however....the Admiral isn't a big fan of this kind of seat. She finds it too long for her legs in the lowered position, and too high in the raised position. So I was hoping for an opinion from the members here. Should I track down this type of material (is it just UHMW Poly or something fancier?) Or should I consider a newer design of seat that's bolster doesn't make the seat quite as long? Surely they improved on these a bit since 2001? Thanks for the input as usual!!
  9. Oooh, that new SSx is sharp! I like! I hadn't actually considered changing up the decals themselves. There are some interesting ones available form some sellers online of other Chap's, too. That could be fun to explore. Thanks for the input Shep!
  10. I figured Brick would be in before too long when he saw 220 in the title. Just spitballing for now....though wraps are cool, they might be a little TOO extreme for me, too. Lol, maybe I should just be content for a while. Thanks guys!!!
  11. ahh...that is to what I was referring in the first post. Sorry I didn't make that clear enough! My stream of consciousness writing fails me again. lol. But still...if a vinyl shop was to make something, it certainly could be a decal.
  12. looks like there were a few in 2001. mmmm....blue.
  13. ah rats. But that's a fantastic point....its really not terribly complicated, and we have some good vinyl shops here. Thanks!
  14. Our 220 has, what I feel is, a somewhat uncommon graphics layout. Its got the 2 swooshes, one gray, one blue, but the no color above the swooshes, just white. Technical terms there. So I was wondering....were the colors above said swooshes vinyl graphics, or is it part of the gel coat? If one were to get bored with the look, would those graphics still be available? Thanks!
  15. Stroking the push-rod, eh. *cough* ok, i'll behave.
