  1. No but we have a 2008 276 SSX and we love it! They are great boats and I’m sure you will love it too.
  2. I know. Last year was tough, really didn't do much boating until August last year due to water levels. Hope this year is better.
  3. John is a meteorologist on one the local TV channels. He is well known for his photography. BTW I boat out of Sodus bay and visit Chimney Bluff's and Webster all the time
  4. I am rooting for reasonable lake levels for the Great Lakes this spring. Currently Lake Ontario is about 13" higher than last year.
  5. According to this ling Chaparral did not provide a manual for 1991.
  6. Congrats! How can you not LOVE a boat like that!
  7. Intake Air Control valve. Takes about 5 min to change once you locate it. Also I purchased mine from Auto Zone based on a recommendation from Wingnut. I paid ~89 deer vs the 200 or so Merc wanted.
  8. Futzin - Beautiful boat! I have to say my 2008 is in the similar condition. It also stays out all from April thru October then it is stored indoors for the winter.
  9. I’d go with the black. As far as fading as long as you take care of the hull .... washing and waxing a couple of times a year you will be fine.
  10. I'd make sure everything is wired correctly for a various reasons. Your safety and the safety of the people around you. Below is an interesting read and you will see that if there is a fire that impacts you / boats around you / and the marina it is on your insurance / nickel and I would hate to think of what would happen if there was a fatality .
  11. I hate spell checker.... Hatem
  12. Hated- very nice! I need one of those to tow my boat.
  13. They can be added ...... and I would definitely add them. There are many threads on this forum that discuss adding trim tabs.
  14. Hello All, I have a quick question while winterizing my 496 Mag w/ Corsa exhaust I noticed that there was a small flow of water was passing thru the Corsa even though the exhaust was off. Is this typical or do I need to replace some seals over the winter?
  15. That’s why I do my own. But yes sounds Just a little high for my area
