    Windless anchor for a 276 ssx

    Ya great photos what is the distance from the bottom edge of the metal rub rail to the top of ur hole cutout? also are u attaching the chain to the front hole of the anchor right above the plow and tie wiring the chain link to the rear hole some guys do this in case they cant get the anchor loose so the tie wire breaks free and u get a direct pull above the anchor plow if so will the layout handle this?

    Great that's exactly what I want to do. save the ladder access and cut a hole thru the bow keel and mount a windless below the ladder if u find the correct sized windlass device please let me know I also have a large chromed plate hook connector mounted on the bow keel that the anchor might rub against as it is brought in for bow protection thanks! Ed
  7. I'm looking to install a electric windless anchor unit in my 2007 276 SSX can anyone recommend the manuf/model the factory would have installed that will fit and work properly? thankd ed
  8. Hey I've been having same restarting issues with my 5.7 EFI merc. On my 230 SSI 2001 chap. Happened three times to me . Each time I ran boat for at least an hour. Then stopped for at least 1/2 hour went to restart and engine would initially start for aprox 1-2 sec. then shut off. After about a hour of screwing around checking things and calling mechanic friends it restarted I checked fuel cooler during the down time (above fuel pump ) and was not hot - thinking fuel vaporization. I disconnectect wiring cinnections during this down time also to the fuel pump relay and fuel pressure sensor. Got it back home after the restart 1 hour running time . Shut it off set up to flush the system and it started and ran for approx 5 min and stumbled off again Let it sit over night and started right up next day ran it all day stopped three times for approx 1 hour each time with the engine hatch open and had no problems. Go figure. Seems to me a hot engine restart issue as it restarts after cooling down a little . All times I had 1/2 tank of gas. Didn't check fuel filter as boat ran like a top when running. Question in looking at the fuel pump schematic above isn't the tube part 27 that comes from the inside of the spark arrestor on the vacuum side of the fuel pump there by the fuel regulator when open sucks in air back into the fuel system? Or better question is how does the fuel pressure work? Ed P
  9. Hatem Thanks you rock in Boston this is great news for Me to go after buying this boat hope the weather changes quick so you can get out and enjoy Ed
  10. Hatem Yes I can wait the 8' level will work great Thanks Ed
  11. Yes Drew Hatem is correct I need the swim platform length removed from the 28' - 10" loa If some one has the boat out of the water on a trailer it would be better to measure it by dropping a plumb line down from the bow point and measuring along the underside of the boat to the rear transom bottom point Thanks in advance if someone can get that for me because I would really like to buy this boat Ed
  12. Can some one give me the loa dimension of the subject boat from the bow point to the rear transom line below the out drive. I'm restricted to a 27'- 0" length at our florida complex boat lift
