    Wife Not Happy.....

    Well, knowing that "The Toddler" was going to be sitting in the barn this summer and possibly next. I made a mention that it could be for-sale, Oops! I made an offer he made another, then I asked her, another big Oops. Well, the Admiral was not happy because I didn't mention it to her. Why was she not told, where are we gonna find another. Yadda Yadda........Sleeping on couch (good thing its comfy) I have two years to squirrel away more doe for the next one. Just don't know what. I'll still be around. Boatless in chicago....... Matt

    256 ssi/ssx

    IMO, The ssi is the better boat. Hulls are the same mostly. But, For One reason only is the size of the opening to get to the engine and anything in there. When I prop it open I can get to everything. The Vac-u-flush is almost like having a real toilet. One pulls up the the dock a guy screws in a fitting you step on the valve he opens a his valve and swish its gone. Also the head in a the ssi is taller, My head touches the roof in a ssx not in my ssi, and I do use it sometimes. .

    Lenco Trim Tabs on 256 what controller?

    I have the separate controller, non LED. Its was cheaper, an LED controller will not light up with it. One has to buy the more expensive controller for the lights to work. I also mounted it where the Depth gauge was, moving the fuel gauge to the dash. There are 2 panels that you can remove under the helm, in the storage compartment. You'll be able to gain acsess to the helm area through it. While your in there you might want to add soom underwater LED's. You'll have to remove the water tank, batteries, extingusher, drain lines, and both CC exhaust tubes, and disconnect the hatch lift to open it up a little more. This picture was taken when I was changing a gasket on the exhaust manafold, but you can see the stick holding the hatch up higher.

    Swim deck cleats

    Let me remind you. You own a boat that rests in Water and one way or another Water will get in. The amount of Water that gets in will Not sink It. PS; I use those cleats a lot. .

    To change or not to change Impeller

    Every three years, for me. No need to do it every year unless you put on 200-300 hrs. IMO If I was the replace this one with another (used one), I would change the impeller first time it lands in the drive. .

    New impeller, no water flow

    Sounds to me, that if your temp was going down with a RPM increase. That your water supply was low. .

    Can I tow this....

    IT WILL BE JUST FINE..... We took ours to Lake Powell with an 08 Sierra 5.3. One doesn't need a 3/4ton to pull anything, cause you still got to stop it. Bla bla bla..

    Cover Leaks Around Tower

    They all do. I would suggest you take up your carpet (If you have it) put in a compartment or in the bow. That way the water will drain and not make it moldy. .
