    What is this

    That would be your fuel filter..... Oil filter would be on the port side.

    Replacing Hull Letters

    What’s the best adhesive to use for the Chap lettering and logo? Had a bunch fall off this season so have some to replace. Thanks

    Volvo or Merc?
  4. Hey all, 2004 Sunesta 234 - I've been noticing a really nasty sewer smell at the stern of the boat - while anchored and swimming after the head has been used quite a bit. It doesn't smell in the head compartment itself - only at the stern and in the cabinet beneath the sink which is adjacent to the head compartment - assuming the waste line runs under this. This is my first boat with a head - there is one sea cock which i assume is the inlet for the fresh water - hoping there isn't another that I don't know about that is letting the waste overboard and thats what i'm smelling. The waste tank appears to be solid - no leaks and the hose clamps are tight and in good shape. I replaced the joker valve and seals in July because the head wasn't holding water. Anyone with the same setup that can shed light or tell me where there would be another sea cock that I'm not seeing? Thanks in advance.

    Sunesta 236 w 5.0 UNDER POWERED?

    I've got a new to me (this season) 2004 Sunesta 234 which is about the same as the one you are looking at except I've got the Volvo 5.0 GXI with SX drive - 270HP. I bought the boat with a 3 blade 14.5 x 21 prop and the hole shot was kinda weak and took a while to plane - top speed was about 40 at 4600 rpm - ended up breaking down about 10 hours in due to loss of spark - needed a tune up. I did a complete tune up - plugs, wires, cap, rotor, fluids, filters. I switched to 4 blade 14.5 x 19 and hole shot is great - much quicker and smoother. Planes very quick and gets right up to 4800 rpm with a top speed of about 38-40 depending on water conditions and load. I'd probably get more top end with a 3 blade but the hole shot is better with a 4 blade so I'll stay with that for now. I mostly cruise around 3500 rpm at about 20-25 mph or pull the kids on the tube so don't need a speed demon. It's a heavy boat and the 5.0 is probably a bit undersized for it - a 5.7 would be much better in terms of torque but the 5.0 does find for what I need at this point. Hope this helps.

    1997 Sunesta 232 Carpet and Enclosure....FREE

    I’d be interested in the measurements as well to see if it’ll work for my 234. If either Bt Doctur or cjm13905 don’t take it that is. Thank you!

    Anyone have these?

    Sorry, havin a time getting photos to post on this forum.... Really could be upgraded considering the usability of other forums i'm on is sooooo much better. Anyway, see the attached link for an idea of how I'm using the hull huggr's. I got some stainless washers and wood screws and just screwed it into the finger dock and let it hang down. I installed them towards the stern up to about midway so I only need one length on each side and the ropes keep the bow from hitting the docks. Then I've got the thicker single 36" at the bow/head of my slip installed the same way.... http://i1157.photobucket.com/albums/p598/David_Chesky/C224C554-B524-4F9A-9BC6-39206EE172FF.jpg

    My marina allows as long as we remove them at the end of each season. No big deal - 7 or 8 stainless wood screws each side and it’s done.

    Those are the ones I'm using. I screwed them into the dock on both sides and they hang over just above the water line. No need for bumpers at all. I'll take some photos this weekend.

    I think you're looking at the wrong ones.... They've got the wrong picture on amazon actually - the hull hugr's i'm using are 7.5 ' long by 15" wide so i hung them along the finger dock on both sides of my slip and my boat fits in nicely in between. I'll take some photos this weekend and post em.

    Stumble on cold start after tune up...

    IAC filter? It’s a valve isn’t it. And symptoms would be erratic idle or rpm which i am not experiencing. Nothing I’ve read regarding IAC valve resembles what my motor is doing. But maybe it’s on its way out. Time will tell. Oil was just changed and levels are perfect.

    Stumble on cold start after tune up...

    Fuel pressure is good I think... 50-52 at idle on the rail and 12 steady on the low pressure. Nothing loose and all lines are connected firmly. Started up cold without stalling but still stumbles and sounds like a vacuum leak somewhere but clears up pretty much right away. Weird... guess I’ll just have to live with it.

    Stumble on cold start after tune up...

    Yep thanks. Planning to check fuel pressure and all vacuum lines tonight. On my way over to the marina now. I’m located on Lake Hopatcong in northern New Jersey. Thanks for the help!

    I've got one 3' installed along the front and used the 7.5' x 15" hull hugr's on each side towards the stern. Really works nicely to keep the hull protected and I don't have to use bumpers.... https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0000AY0AE/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00SMDQWAY/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1
