    Boat pics

    I am mostly a lurker here asking a few questions here and there on my 01 196 SSI but I just about have it dialed in so I thought I would share some pics. Just wanted to add that thanks to this site I bit the bullet and added a swim platform from swimplatforms.com and it was the best money I have spent on the boat.

    No it is definitely coming from inside the boat but I can't see any of it in the bilge of the boat just leaking out of drain plug.

    Also wanted to add that I have changed out the trim reservoir to the newer style so I know it is not leaking out of that. Thanks

    2001 196 SSi

    Hello everyone, I have a question about my 01 196 SSi, I have owned this boat for a little over a year and we have only had it on the water a few times. I noticed that my hydraulic trim fluid is leakin out of my bilge. I have pretty much narrowed it down to the hoses or a bad manifold. Anyone had any experience with this? My mechanic thinks it's the hoses and is saying he will need to pull the engine to repair. Pretty sure he is right but wanted to get opinions here as well. Thanks for any input. Blake

    I was actually talking about the material that snaps in under the jump seats to cover the battery compartment .

    Guys can anyone tell me what material was used under the jump seats on a 196 SSi. I have the standard seating not sure if it was carpet or what. Any ideas?

    Back to back seats

    Guys I have searched and searched and haven't been able to locate the info I am looking for. I have an 01 196 SSi with standard seating. The guy that I bought the boat from had the seats re-upholstered and tried putting them back together and didn't get it correct. Is there a schematic or you tube video that any of you might know of that shows how the lounge seats are supposed to go back together? I have them back in the same position that he had them now so I can get by for a while but I would like to get it back the way they are supposed to be.

    Need Help with throttle control

    Hello, new guy here with a question. I have a new to me 2001 196 SSI, that is in extremely good condition. There are a few things that I would like to fix but I am not sure what I am looking at. I think the throttle control is a quicksilver Commander 3000 but I can't find anything on it that says that. Would you guys take a look at these pics and let me know if my thinking is correct. Thanks in advance
