  1. I have a 2010 chap 370 signature with 8.1 Volvo GXi engines. The EVC is showing three codes. Does anyone know what might be causing this. The boat is running great, but this just start this weekend. MID 187 PSID 14 FMI 12 I did a google search and it said the CAN communication link was lost. Does anyone have any experience with this. I hope I just have a loose connection.
  2. I want to let everyone know the GEICO/Boat US would not take care of any of their clients in Texas when the power grid went down for Three days. They claimed Freeze damage is not covered. I appealed four times that the damage was caused by the failed power grid. GEICO refused to listen even after I sent them a 6 page file illustrating how the failure of the grid was the real cause of the damage. Progressive did take care of their clients and I have switched my boat and Car insurance. Progressive gives better customer service and they saved me $600 per year just on my boat coverage.

I encourage everyone to contact Carly at National Boat Owners Association 800-248-3512 and give them a chance to earn your business. Gieco found every reason NOT to take care of there customers. Progressive did what was right for their customers.
  4. Well Geico let me know they are not going to cover the cost of repairs. I am very disappointed in their response to an epic event that only has happened in Texas once in 100 years. I’ll be staying in boating, but it may be in a different vessel. Thanks to all for your assistance. Great advise.
  5. Thank you all for the advise and the link to the government website. I should hear from my insurance company early next week. The estimated repower cost for two engines is about $20k. Let’s hope Gieco does what’s right.
  6. It’s 170 gallons in the fuel tanks
  7. You can see why I am hopeful Global Marine/GIECO Does the right thing. I will let you know the outcome. Meeting the marine surveyor on Tuesday.
  8. Looks like the historic nature of this event and the national disaster declaration, will work in my favor. I believe insurance will take that into account. I will let you know as I know more.
  9. Well I have two cracked blocks. I am waiting to see what insurance is going to cover.
  10. My strainers and water lines are holding. I am cautiously optimist the engines survived. It won’t be 60 degrees until Wednesday. We will see then! I want to thank everyone who offered feedback. I really appreciate it.
  11. delahey This is great advise I will try all of these things. Temps will be back above freezing Saturday. Wish me luck. I will I’ll keep everyone posted
  12. Cyclops another great suggestion lebanshe its in the water. Lake temp is still in the 40’s
  13. Phillbo good question, emptied all holding tanks. Put foam in the engine vents. It’s Texas. Never expected temps that set all time lows in recorded history. Never had rolling blackouts. Never thought The wind turbines in OK froze up an could not generate power for two states. Your right. I’ll know better next time
  14. Cyclops thanks for the advise. My mechanic tried to start the engine and it just spun. He said the water pump is frozen. All water lines are too. Generator would not crank. Water lines frozen there too. How do I make an insurance claim for natural disaster?
  15. It been below 28 for almost 36 hours. Last night the temp was below 0
