  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

  4. 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.
  5. 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.

  7. 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.
