  5. had a similar issue,2017 VORTEX 233 VRX ended up with another boat,being it was the middle of the season.your dealer is your main contact,he or she knows who to call,be persistent. u spent your money.u can try to reach out to your Regional sales rep.for your area.( call cust. service & demand to speak with him or she.i gave them my # & in two days got called back) at the very least he will direct u in the right direction. the factory would be my decision to have it repaired. i can understand your frustration,i am in N.Y the season for me is over, but i still like to go into garage
  6. gentleman chaparral took back the boat & my dealer ( jenny from penny bridge in Stonypoint n.y.) located another boat ( same color) from another chaparral dealer. chaparral then purchased that boat from that dealer to give to me.they had it delivered to my dealer to re-prep. Chaparral paid for the registration transfer everything etc... I was with out a boat for just over 3 weeks. for compensation this boat had almost 3,k extra in options.i am sure the dealer did good and fought for me to make this happen.they are a small family run dealer & have been in operation for 7 years.sometim

  8. purchased new vortex 223 2017 ( jet boat ) i am in New York ,dealer had to find boat in New Jersey got it with 1 hour.i only been using it in rivers & lakes.only trailer boat to & from.notice right away when cleaning after first week that in the transom on the aluminum it has white powdery puss looking spots. i now believe that the boat may have sat in salt water before i got it at other dealer. i cleaned it with soap & water brushed it until it was gone.waxed it ,but the next week taking it out spots were there again.cleaned it again.same thing happened. Spent week in lake George

    2017 233 VORTEX VRX
  10. JUST PURCHASED 2017 223VRX .ANY ONE KNOW WHERE IS A GOOD PLACE TO MOUNT TRANSDUCER FOR FISH FINDER.HAS JET ENGINES NO PROPS..LOOKING AT IT I BELIEVE BEST PLACE IS BY WATER DRAIN PLUG BEING CLOSEST TO CENTER LINE & AWAY FROM ALL THE PLATES UNDER BOAT THAT WOULD CAUSE TURBULENCE THAT WOULD INTERFERE WITH SIGNAL.
