    2006 246 SSI Toilet

    I emailed Cecil Marine and they shot me a link to aqua star distributors and they sell the whole new toilet lid for the VaccuFlush, but they dont sell the hinges.

    2006 246 SSI Toilet

    I am looking for a hinge set for the toilet in my 2006 246 SSI toilet seat. So far all I can find is the whole toilet and all i need is the two hinges. Its the pump out toilet built into boat.

    Adding a third battery

    Well looking over my boat last night, I have ZERO room for another battery unless I install it into a compartment. So, this option is out.

    Adding a third battery

    Currently in my 246, I have 2 batteries on a selector switch, it has off, battery 1, battery 2, and both as options. I have 3 amplifiers running all kinds of subs and speakers and I want to add a third battery dedicated to the stereo system. How do I add the cables to the existing system switch ? Can this third battery just piggy back off another battery on the switch ? I will have a 3 bank charger to keep them charged when in storage, just not sure how to wire it into the boat for an alternator charge.

    SEM Marine Vinyl Coating

    Can you post a link to what your purchased with the colors ? I have the same interior colors as you on my 2006 246 SSI. The tops of my captains chairs are faded from the sun. I would like to try it on those. Just the color for the top of captains chairs.

    Water in transom

    So, got a call back from the Chaparral factory. A very nice lady spoke to the guys in the shop for me and they said not to worry about it. There built to get some moisture in there and the transom on the 2006 model will last another 20 years. He said its probably coming from the bracket support screws and to just reseal them and forget it. I also got the same exact answer from Joe at Cecil marine.

    Thanks, hopefully that is the case. Im still going to pull the platform and reseal everything to help me feel better about it.

    OK, thanks. Is there a Marine GE RTV ?

    Are you saying put a hole under the out-drive on both sides of keel line ? You think the water could get over there around the curve of the V-line ? Which GE product do you recommend, I have always used the 3M Marine 5200 i believe.

    Water in transom

    Yes, I am planning on doing that this weekend. The main bolts will be easy to work with getting them out and resealing since the are inside engine compartment. The lower support brackets look to just screw into the transom, they are to low to access inside the engine compartment. IM sure all of you are right, i bet its coming from those support brackets or maybe even my drive is not sealed.

    Where would you recommend making the hole ? I would like to put it where the water would drain, then I can close it off with a type of drain plug that could later be opened back up for another inspection to verify water is no present.
