    Fresh water guy looking to the Bahamas??

    Most of the video's I've seen on youtube and others. The Captains seem to have a lot of open water experience. Once one cannot see land its pretty intimidating. "what was I thinking" . My wife gets a little uneasy out on Lake Michigan when I get 5 miles out and we still can see land. It's on my bucket list but after I get the 30'er. .

    New owner

    New boat survey waist of doe IMO. Its New. If the dealer is good he'll stand behind what ever you find after a few trips. Boats are hand made one at a time, you might find a nut or screw some were that was dropped, and not picked up. You also might find a loose screw or clamp, just tighten it don't sweat it. Welcome to the group. .

    Lake Powell advice

    We were there a few years back, my only regret is that we didn't do a little hiking. Boating Lake Powell is amazing, but renting a 20'er wouldn't be my first choice. Philbo's suggesting of the tour boat seems to be the better option if you want to see the canyons around the lake. Take time to plan a few hiking trips. .

    220 SSI Bravo 3 Props

    Your "Bill of Sale" should have the serial number of the engine. Call your local shop they should be able to contact Merc/VP to get the original setup for your boat. Motor HP, Outdrive Gear Ratio and Prop Pitch. .

    Merc 8.2 impeller change instructions

    I usually wait for 3 years...... My first one was 4 years and 180 hrs. First time I did it, it took two of us 3 1/2 hrs. I've been able to get it done by myself in less than 1 1/2. Every three years. We watched a lot of video on it but its a pain the first time. .
