  1. I want add that any boat with a joystick verses one without is going to be easier to manage. Docking, parking, saddling up to friends. There is no question it’s a better system. I would go for it for the joystick feature alone.

    What product/s to use to remove oxidation?

    Maguire's cleaner wax does a very nice job on light oxidation. Just waxed my red boat with it and it came out great.

    Lower unit oil change

    Thanks for the advice. Had water in the oil in the lower unit. The last technician that changed the oil stripped the drain plug and created a leak. This check up will end up saving me a fortune. I appreciate the advice

    Upgrading Audio

    I did a side by side comparision between JL and Fuson head units and there was no comparison. Fusion was hands down better sound. I have JL speakers in my boat and love them. I am going with the Fusion receiver. Just better sound.

    Lower unit oil change

    How often should you change the oil in the out drives? I have heard niece a year and every other year. What your thoughts on a boat with 75 hours on it last year.

    Lower unit oil change

    Has anyone converted their seatalk system to NMEA 2000? I have update to Raymarine Axiom chart plotter and I want to see all my engine information through the unit. Has anyone connected their seatalk cables to a NMEA 2000 backbone? I am going to upgrade he stereo to a Fusion 755 and it will connect to the Raymarine with the NMEA 2000 as well.

    Signature 350 Carpet

    Before you go with new carpet you might consider SeaDeck. It is a great alternative to carpet. Check them out on the web.

    REMOVING SPIDER **** AND STAINS

    The best product I have found to control spiders is Viper. It comes in a concentrate.it is available on Amazon or your local feed store. Mix it with water at it works great. Maker sure you spray your dock lines and around your cleats. That it usually their primary point of enter. The starbright spider clearer is good as well as mean green. You can never completely elimate them, but you can slow them down.

    What Cruiser Would You Buy?

    I would look at Cruiser Yatchs. The wide beam and great fit and finish. Your should be able to find one in that price range

    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.

    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.
  14. I just added the Raymarine Axiom 9. This toy is awesome. Everyone should get one. Fast, detailed GPS, the sonar will blow you away.
