    Noisy water pump

    I recently had the same issue with my water pump. It quit within 6 months of the issue you described. I bought a SHUFLO 4008 101 A65. Best $60 I could spend. Better water pressure and it is very quiet. Installed it myself in 30 minutes. Throw that one away and upgrade. You will be glad you did.

    Battery charger replacement

    My battery charger died that came with my 2010 signature 370. What is the life span of a battery charger? I am also looking for recomendations how how often I should replace the batteries?

    Mercruiser Axius upgrade

    You can add a joystick to the boat. Mercury makes one and there are after market companies that have a product the fits Merck’s or Volvo. I have seen both advertised in boating magazines. My boat I equipt with one and it is awesome.
  4. I just added the Raymarine Axiom 9. This toy is awesome. Everyone should get one. Fast, detailed GPS, the sonar will blow you away.

    Voltage Readings on Dash Gauge

    Check the trickle charger. I have a 2010 signatures 37 and mine just died. Caused all sorts of issues. Inspect your batteries as well.

    Signature 310 bed

    If you are looking for sheets try a brand called SHEEX. Just bought a set and they are great sheets for odd shaped beds for boats. Bought them on amazon

    Buying from boat show

    I bought my boat at the Dallas boat show last year. The dealer had a lot of inventory and was very willing to give on his price. I also think dealers know all the competition is in the same building. If they don’t put their best foot forward, the dealer in the next stall could take the business. Don’t be a to work a could of dealers for the best deal. Good luck and go big.

    What to look for in a seatrail?

    Check the trim pumps. If it is a Volvo. They have been redesigned because they break at the age of the boat your looking at. The fittings should come out the sides not the top of the unit. It is very expensive when they go out.
  9. I have a 2010 signature 370 with a Volvo 8.1 and IPS joystick. The steering unit went out on the port side. Has there been any bulletins from Volvo about this problem? I have seen three mentions of this problem on the forum pages.  It is an expensive repair and is not a common breakdown. I am hoping Volvo will cover part of this.

    2013 370 signature with volvo penta ips

    This happened to my boat and ended up replacing the steering control unit. i have a 2010 370 signature. This is not a cheap repair. It seems to be a common problem with the Volvo engines with a joystick.

    Raymarine Axiom

    Has anyone upgraded their chart plotter and sonar to the Raymarine Axiom system. The reviews seem to indicate it is the best in class electronics. Would like to hear from some one with real world experience.

    Steering failure

    I have Volvo penta 8.1 and the EVC is is throwing a code warning. The port drive will no longer turn. The steering wheel turns, but the drive does not. There are no issues with the starboard drive. Can anyone tell me what is going on? My boat is a 2010 signature 370 with a joystick. This is by wire. The technician recommended a new steering unit.
