  1. Mine 2017 21 H2O (purchased in 2016) has Volvo 240 (non catalyst) and it's plenty with even the OEM aluminum prop - pulls anyone up on the wakeboard with 6 people in the boat. It's a good overall boat. The only issues I've had with it using all year round - the horn went out, the trim gauge stopped working, and replaced bilge pump - all done in the first few months after the purchase, under warranty. What I started noticing this year is that the swim platform mat is beginning to peel from the platform - not everywhere, but in a few corners. I'm planning to use 3M 77 to glue it back down in those corners. Originally, I've ordered the upgraded Clarion Stereo System with Bluetooth and Transom Stereo Remote and it's just OK, not great. The Bluetooth on that Clarion constantly periodically disconnects from the source (tried numerous phones: Motorola, Pixel, iPhones, Samsung) which is very annoying. I'm upgrading the whole thing now and adding tower speakers. I have Snap-In Cockpit Carpet and cold not be happier about that option - feels great, looks great, easy to clean (when needed). I wash down the boat after every use, including carpet, and it's just as new today.
  2. I bought my boat from Intermarine in Fort Lauderdale last year and want to share my experience with them. My buying experience was a pleasure - very informative sales, no pressure, answered all my questions, showed me all options. Just a breeze. More importantly, I had to bring my boat in for the first 2 services - and that experience was just as positive. They always have availability (just a few days wait during busy season), their service department is top notch. Don't just buy a boat - buy a dealer, and I'm glad I picked Intermarine. So, if anyone is looking to buy or service their boat in Fort Lauderdale or Miami area - you can't go wrong with Intermarine, I highly recommend them. P.S. - they did not ask me post this, I just did a service with them and was blown away by their service department. Even though I bought one of the cheaper boats they offer, they treat me like royalty every time I come in or call. Super good service.
  3. Just found out about a charger that could charge different types of chemistries at the same time and cost pretty reasonably:
  4. Yare correct that the charger will distribute the voltage based on the battery charging state BUT it will push that voltage BASED ON A CHARGING PROFILE which is different for AGM and flooded. That charger you have has only one profile selector - and that profile applies to both banks. I also think that you have a wrong charger - it's too weak. A charger with separate charging profile for each bank will run you over $700 easy.
  5. Fire Ants? What's that? Anyway, got to go prep for fishing tomorrow. You, gents, have fun
  6. Winters? What's that?
  7. Not true!!! I love my H2O too - exactly what I need and no problems with it thus far, although short ownership though- only 1 season. I could've gotten a cruiser or a bigger boat but we never take multi day trips, and never will - H2O is perfect for what we need.
  8. Miami area was spared with pretty much nothing substantial - some wind, some rain.
  9. Sometimes LMGTFY is appropriate but not this time. Let me ask you @newboat2016 please point me to a link from your LMGTFY result "about where I can read the test results and sea trials of the 350 Series" (the one review from 2001 does not count - 15 years old!)? LMGTFY is a snobby way to show someone to use common sense and basic skills or a brilliant way to demonstrate that you lack the same if used inappropriately.
  10. As with anything, nothing wrong with financing a boat if it makes financial sense. If you really cant afford it and need a loan with a monthly payment low enough in order to fit your budget, then, maybe, you need to re-evaluate and get something more affordable. If you're looking at a loan because it makes financial sense - why not?
  11. Yeah, the OB model is already up on their website
  12. Yeah, the cooler sux but it's fixable. Here is the post from my other thread
  13. Oh, thanks for pointing that out. Drewm3i must have an account on another "truth" forum from which I was sharing the pic and he was able to see them Should be fixed now
  14. Sure, that's why I ran a new wire sized for the load and distance. I'm not sure what you mean by "Just be sure the volt gauge isn't a part of that circuit as it draws much more amperage and needs proper protection." can you elaborate please?
