  1. Several weeks ago I asked for some help with my shower sump pump. Well the good news is I bought a new replacement and everything works great now. My question now is "does a Signature 240 have a forward bilge and if so where in the heck is it". I have looked everywhere I know to look and can't find any sign of one if there is one. If anyone knows please let me know. Thanks
  2. All good information. I know the a/c pump is working fine because I always check to see if water is coming out the side of the boat when it is switched on. I can also see at least one line to the shower pump ( I think there is another one on the other side that I can't see) and there is also another inlet with no hose attached on the near side. This weekend I plan to take the cover off the box and see if I can lift the pump out to check the lines and see if they are clogged and check the electrical connections to be sure it is getting power.
  3. From what I can tell the water is getting to the box where pump is. So, either the pump is not working or the drain line from the pump to the outside might be clogged.
  4. I have a 2003 Signature. I poured water on the bath floor to make sure it was draining properly. Well, guess what. Next thing I knew there was water in the cabin floor. I have tried to do my research to figure out what the problem is. If I understand the bath/shower water drains to a pump which I think is located under the step that goes down into the cabin. My question is should I try and take the pump out (it appears to located inside a Plexiglas box) and check the float switch or check and see if the bilge pump is just bad. Any thought, suggestions or ideas would be helpful.
  5. I use to live in Jacksonville and have made the trip to the Conch House several times in a friends boat. Will probably do that for sure.
  6. Hope everyone is staying dry and warm for the winter. I live in Greensboro, N.C. and am planning to take a cruise on the ICW this year. Looking at April or May. I have a 240 Signature which I plan to trailer to Myrtle Beach to launch. I then plan to go to Charleston S.C. the first day, on to Savannah the second day then Jeykll Island. The final day I am going to Jacksonville Fl. Not sure yet but may go as far as Daytona Beach. Just wondering if anyone has made this trip that might could give me a few pointers. Right now it will just be me and my first mate but anyone is interested let me know. I am looking at taking ten days to two weeks for the trip.

    Engine Alarms

    I have a 240 Signature. When I turn the key to the on position I do not hear an alarm warning. On two previous Chaps I owned I would hear the alarm warning when I turned the key to the on position. I'm not sure if it has been unhooked or if this is normal. I keep close eye on all gauges and everything seems to be working fine. Is this normal or is there a way to check the wiring for the alarms? The boat is a 2003 model with 300 hours. It is a 5.0 engine.
  9. I figured that might be the case. I have vacuumed it several times and it is dry now. Hopefully it will be okay. I just thought if it was just a separate bottom I could take it out. Thanks for the input.
  10. I have a 240 Signature. Last week while having some work done the guy working on the boat left the cockpit cover off. Of course we had heavy rains which filled the bildge causing water to back up in the cabin floor. I actually had standing water on the cabin floor. After making sure the bildge was drained and vacuuming the carpet several time I think it will be okay. My question is this. Does anyone know how hard it would be to remove the carpeted floor panel in the cabin. I don't know if it might just pull up, or is it screwed down or is it and act of congress to take up. Any help would be appreciated.
  11. You can get the replacement marine grade foam at American Micro Industries in Chambersburg, Pa. I just received mine (for a 1997 1930SS) and it is the same as original. They have a web site. Just look up Marine Foam.com. It cost less than 70 deer for a 4x8 sheet including shipping and the adhesive. I received it the next day.
  12. This is my first post to the forum but I read it every day. I see you're looking at a 1930 Sport. I have a '97 1930 sport and love it. It has the 4.3LX Gen+ Mercruiser and has been very good. The reason I wanted to post is you mentioned there is no hour meter. I have the Limited Edition model and it has the "Hour Meter" on the speedometer where you would find the Odometer on a car. Not sure when and exactly what models have it for sure but check just to be sure. I'll be interested to see what you find out.
