  1. Hi fellow Chappy boaters, I hope everyone is getting through this winter ok. I have a question for you all. My boat is a 2007 Chaparral 275ssi with a 496 Mercury with the bravo 3 outdrive. My outdrive needs the steering pin fixed. I know this is common on the bravo 3 drives. I have been given two options to fix it. The first is too pull the engine and fix it that way, the second is to drill into the side of the bell housing and replace it then put plugs in to cover the holes. To me this would possibly be a way for water intrusion. Has anyone had this done? If so what way did you go about getting it done? Thanks in advance for any advice or ideas on this repair.

    Keys Trip

    When you go can you post your trip. Im in Ontario Canada and I am thinking about towing my boat down to either do the keys or cruise over to the bahamas. Its a bucket list item. Thanks!!!
  4. Mine started making the exact same noise my last run of the season. Im thinking its the gimbal as well. Come spring I will find out for sure. Hopefully the experts will chime in and let us know.
  5. This past year I had to replace my Vacuum pump and a duckbill valve in the discharge line that goes from the tank to the waste fitting. When I pump out my tank, I turn off the vacuum pump and open the ball to the toilet. I hold it open and I can hear the air sucking all the way from the toilet. Try that and see if that helps.

    Hi Delaney I was following tis thread at the beginning of the summer. I was also looking at PWCs. I looked at yamaha and they only offered a 1 year warranty. Seed offered a 3 year warranty. I happened to be lucky enough and I bought a used 2017 Wakepro 230 with only 4 hours on it and a 5 year warranty that the original owner bought with it. It has been a great addition to our Chaparral. It is a rocket and is hard to hang on to at full speed when hitting the big waves. A lot of fun none the less!
  7. Just ordered a new bimini top for my boat from Ameritex. They are the original manufacturer of the tops for my boat. Has anyone else ordered a top from them? Just curious as to how the new top fit vs the original top that came with your boat.
  8. I have a 275ssi and I bought a triple axle Venture trailer. I have had it for two seasons and so far it has been a great trailer.
  9. So I bought a Promariner Pronautic 1220. I am having the marina install it for me, as they are currently doing the impeller and new flappers for the exhaust. I figured if your going to blow the bank, might as well do it all at the beginning of the season. : ( Thanks everyone for the wealth of information. Very much appreciated!
  10. Ok back at it again. My battery charger is kaput. I was told that is fried my two brand new batteries that I installed last year. (Hope not)!!! Any way, for those of you that have replaced your battery chargers, is it a do it yourself thing or should I get my marina to do it? I am handy and particular so I feel confident tackling the job myself. Just want to see what the rest of my fellow Chappy boaters think. Also Scubajohnsonben thanks for the link for the new charger. Looks top notch. Any other recommendations on chargers to replace my original one with? Thanks guys!
  11. Ok we are back. Had a great time, other than the weather being crap! (Cold)! Thanks for everyones replies to my post! LOL! JK!
  12. Barrie, Ontario Canada. I boat on Lake Simcoe and Georgian Bay. Spent my summers as a kid on Georgian Bay boating and water skiing and fishing. If any of you ever come up this way look me up and I will be more than happy to take you boating!
  13. On Thursday, the girlfriend and her two boys and I are heading to Myrtle Beach for a week. Her father and his wife live down there for the winter so we will be visiting them. We are driving down and we are staying at the Anderson Beach club and spa. My question for those of you who live there, is what are some must do things while we are down there? Is there a reputable deep sea fishing outfit that anyone recommends? Thanks in Advance! Steve
