    Most efficient rpm...

    I think the Dangling Rope ice cream is the only thing Aramark sells that people don't complain about.

    Most efficient rpm...

    Everybody raves over the Dangling Rope ice cream. Is it really that good, or is it just so far from civilization that it seems better? I guess I'll have to head south from Halls Crossing sometime and try it out for myself.

    2350 SX help

    I'd like to see a photo of the entire boat, something just isn't right.

    1993 270 Signature - Need to Remove The Port Side Bench Cushions

    Check the seams for screw heads, my 1992 Sig 280 upholstery is wrecked(falling apart/pieces missing), so I can't say specifically, but the backing wood does have holes that would pretty closely match your seams.

    Boat purchase

    That's why I hate to try and find a replacement. I'm just not sure it can be done, but someday I'm going to be forced to try.

    sig 260 canvas

    What kind of help are you looking for? I can come over next weekend with some chips/dip and help out. But Seriously, Prices will range depending on your region. Find a good canvas shop in your area, give them the old one and have them match it. The original manufacturer of the camper enclosures is out of business(I tried that for a 1992 Sig 280).

    Boat purchase

    I have an '02 F-350 with a 7.3L Powerstroke and 248,000 miles. Still pulls the Sig 280 like a champ(set cruise at 67 and head down the road). Don't tell it, but I said I'd start looking for it's replacement when it hit 250K miles. I doubt I'll find a better truck than it has been to me.

    Aluminum Locknut in Bilge, what does it belong to?

    I so want to tell you to get over your butthurt and move on with your life, but I'm a better man than that. I stand by my statement that just because you have an opinion, does not mean that you must share it. The Nazi references are super accurate as I'm of German heritage. You've become the drunk girl at the party who thinks she knows something about every topic, and seems intent on joining every conversation while everyone else rolls their eyes. Grow UP.

    New upholstery estimate

    Exactly right, there are too many options ranging from material choices, regional labor costs, and a million other factors. I live in the middle of nowhere, and have to drive 40 miles to the nearest upholstery shop, so boat upholstery shops are nonexistent. If you're on the coast, or a very popular body of water, the shops will be more familiar with boat equipment, and methods. Ask around in your local area for good shops, and start there.

    Grilling at the dock?

    I think you're supposed to have fire extinguishers on board. They can put out grill fires, as well.

    Lake Powell Boating Conditions

    I'm planning a weekend trip to chase striper boils north of Halls Crossing the weekend of the 18th. So we'll be on the same water at the same time, but unfortunately about 100 miles of crooked canyon will be separating us. Good luck and have fun. I hope the weather isn't too hot, but Powell in the summer is pretty much guaranteed to be "HOT".

    Here we go again! Boat off trailer!

    The boat in Dennis' post warned the driver three times that it was a "Roadster". It was just following it's nature.

    Aluminum Locknut in Bilge, what does it belong to?

    I think Hatem and Cyclops have switched meds with each other. Just because you have an opinion, doesn't mean you have to share it. Especially if you don't have the experience to back it up.

    Trailer/Bunk Question

    Never had a roller trailer(and probably never will). I've seen too many of the "Lost Boat Off Trailer" youtube videos. What do 99% of those accidents have in common?(Roller Trailers). I see the benefit for shallow launch/retrieve, but not worth the risk for me. How do you get a 10,000 lb Sig back on the trailer, once it falls off at a stoplight? My trailer has centering bunks above the waterline(same function as the PVC poles, but more robust).

    Well Johnny, you're up to 10 posts, each dumber than the last. Your opinion is just that yours, don't presume that the rest of the world is "wrong" just because we don't agree with you(that's the liberal way of thinking). Chaparral doesn't stay in business by making crap boats. Unfortunately, you've either got a lemon and a bad dealer, or your expectations of what a boat should be and how it should work are not tied to reality. This is a Chaparral Owners forum, which means that most(if not all) of us already have our boats and aren't looking to buy(mostly because we like them very much even if they aren't perfect). If you're intent is warning us about QC issues, and bad dealers, we get it and there are several threads about it. If it's just to carp about your bad decisions, you're not going to get a lot of sympathy. Try turning down the Anti-Chaparral rhetoric and you might get somewhere, though I'm not sure where.
