  1. Ok guys I feel somewhat stupid in this trouble shooting issue i have been having with my speedometer. I have tried the drill bit in the pitot hole and cleaned debris out only to find out that my speedometer still didn't work. Just yesterday when I was cleaning the boat after having it out on the water I noticed a small diameter hose that was hanging down from the lower unit. Well you guessed it looks like somehow my pickup tube split in half not sure if it's age related the tube seems pliable still never the less is split in half. How hard is it to replace and does anyone have a video on this process to see how involved it is going to be. I have a Alpha One Gen 2 outdrive. Thanks in Advance.
  2. Hey everyone, Looking for some advice on my Alpha one drive. It's a 2003 and i'm not sure what the previous owner did as far as maintenance. I have replace the impeller last season so I know that has been replace recently, but as far as getting deeper in the drive i'm not sure. How often are you supposed to look into changing the gimbal bearing, bellows etc? Are their any warning signs to look out for that they need to be replaced?
  3. Hey guys the family and I are headed down to Norfork thisFriday for the 4th of July week. I saw on the lake report that the level was 20' over normal pool. Has anyone been on the lake recently what shape are the ramps and is there a lot of floating debris in the lake to have to avoid wake boarding/tubing etc? We will be staying at the Rocking Chair resort this is our first time down there so any help would be much appreciated. Hope everyone's boating season is going well thanks for the tips in advance!!

  6. I am looking to add this same set up to my 200ssi this summer. I was looking at the templates that you put in the forum how do you know where the hole is for the esp ladder latch? It is not depicted on the diagram.
  7. Would it be better to get a 4blade 19p or stick to the 3 blade 19p for best hole shot?
  8. This is great tomnjo thanks a lot for sourcing this cover for me!!
  9. After speaking with a representative from Savvyboater the only model I can get for my boat is the semi-custom Carver boat cover. Has anyone had experience with the Carver brand? It is still made with the Sunbrella material.
  10. Ok I spoke with a person at SavvyBoater they spoke to someone at Carver boat covers to nail down a cover that will fit my boat/extended swim platform. Now my next question is which style tent pole did you go with? I am a little reluctant to purchase the vent style poles as I don't want to have to cut holes in my new $800 dollar cover to install them. Even though they would be excellent to have to cut down on mold and mildew
  11. tomnjo did they give you an option for the extended swim platform or does that 210ssi cover just fit your extended swim platform? Looking at the website you linked above I'm not sure that the 196ssi cover will accommodate my ESP.
  12. I found a website that sells the westland covers. But they only have one for the 200 sse model. I'm not sure what the differences are between the ssi and sse does anyone know?
  13. I've been looking for a cover for our 2003 200ssi and I can't seem to find one that fits all of our needs. I'm looking for a full mooring cover to protect the boat while it sits at the house from sun and dust during the summer. I've tried a couple of the different universal covers but they just don't fit all that well. Also i'm looking for something that can be trailer-ed. Has anyone ever dealt with Ameritex Fabric Systems. I put in an email to a dealer in the area for a replacement cover and that is who they recommended. I'm a little nervous ordering such an expensive cover online but I'm having a hard time finding someone in my area that can make one reasonably (AFS is about 400 cheaper than anyone I have found in the area). I want the cover to extend far enough to cover the extended swim platform or do you think that is necessary? Thanks for the advice in advance.
  14. Thanks for all the tips. I did change my seal out once already this year and am still having the issue. I think i'll try the bearing buddy spindle seal kit when I get it back out of storage. RoyR is that a standard size repair kit?
  15. Correct the back side of the hub. I did change the rear seal. I cant seem to find any burs or anything that could make that seal fail.
