    Noisy water pump

    I totally agree that is a great boat. I know most dont start with that but I knew myself that I would want to upgrade after a year if I went smaller and didnt want to go through the hassel of getting a boat twice in a short period of time. The axius joystick was must for me it totally shortened the learning curve for having a boat of that size. Everyone at the marina was always shocked when I would back it in with no help. Made it look like i knew what I was doing

    Noisy water pump

    Thanks That is exactly what I ended up doing as well, found out i had a small crack in a fitting that was letting air in causing the pump to cycle. Thanks for the help

    2 alarm beeps every minute: Updated Update...

    Dont know it it is the same with your engines but I found out that there are some sticky codes that only are cleared when hooked up to a mercruiser computer. I have had a couple 02 sensor codes and then just recently a misfire code that had to be cleared with the computer. The tech told me that some codes clear themselves when the problem is corrected and some need the computer

    So all of a sudden our water pump will come on for about a second then go off. Before the only time you would hear it would be if you turned on the water. Now probably every two minutes it come on for a quick second When no one is using water. Also when we got on the boat today I heard a low motor noise and discovered it was the water pump when I open the faucet it tricked out until it charged the lines and the the low motor sound stopped. Have any of you experienced that. Wondering if the pump is going

    How to Anchor and Sleep Safely

    We have anchored out on the bay a couple of nights this year. Like said before make sure you have a 360 for the anchor swing. We used the anchor alarm app on our phone. We also ran the generator all night with no problems plus let us have A/C

    A/C temporarily stops

    Mine does that too I guess I thought it was normal

    Kohler 5E Generator Help

    Wow that is awesome tip. I hate having to open the engine compartment for that

    Kohler 5E Generator Help

    If its like mine and has a digitial display on it, if you did try to start it when the gas was low there is a error code that pops up you have to clear on the button on the genny. Kind of a dumb feature as you have to open the engine compartment to acknowledge you ran it with low gas even though you filled it up. Mine cuts out between 1/2 and 1/4

    Any opinion on Mantus Anchors?

    Anchor not grabbing, I tried to anchor for a outdoor concert in about 15mph wind and couldnt get it to set, felt it get tight once and thought we were good but then we realized we were moving back slowly, could have been the conditions but there were other boats that were able to grab. Thought I would try it out there video seems compelling

    Late Model Signature Cabin door

    Was wondering if anyone has taken the cabin door off on the signature series. I believe i have some rollers that need replaced as the door closes hard but I am not sure how to disassemble to get to them.
