  1. I am of course letting him. But won’t lower the price regardless of what he finds.
  2. I have a buyer who made an offer on my 2002. Boat is in the water. He has operated it. We have agreed on a price. He now wants a survey which he can certainly do. But I have never heard of anyone paying for a survey on a fiberglass boat this small. It has no electronics, generator etc....it’s just a boat with a motor anything I should watch for?
  3. 2002 Sunesta 263. Very nice shape. 700 hours. 5.7 with B3. No trailer. Was offered $23k for it. Price seems fair for both of us. we will ha e a tough summer next year and get little usage. Might be time to move on and look for a another boat in a few years. I am ok with that.
  4. Well, after years of boating....it happened to me. Was running at 1,000 rpms. Forgot I had the second anchor out due to wind. was running along....rpms dropped for a second or two and came back up. When arrived at the slip a few hundred yards later, realized what had happened. found rope cut and of course by by anchor. its a bravo 3. I jumped in and checked the prop. Turns freely. No sign of rope lodge anywhere. have not run it yet. Anything I should check before taking it out?
  5. 2002 Sunesta. Twice now I have found the garbage can full of water. Boat is always covered. rain water and can’t figure how the #$^% water is filling the can bit not ended up anyway else. And it’s LOADs of water. Only after major rains. The can is stored in the under sink area. Anyone else run into this?
  6. So THIS is your first post? Talk about the pot calling the kettle.....

    Fuel won’t do that. No way. Unless it was junk and it would run like #$^%. Have Rpms Changed? dirty bottom could do this! If it’s slipped it will likely need anti fouling paint. If mine wasn’t coated I would have to pull it three times a summer and clean it. my experience has been been that as it get fouled it will run fine and then BAM suddenly slow down. Have you checked the bildge?
  8. Hey guys, 2002 Sunesta. Rubber molding has fallen off that sits under the window. It’s the soft, thin rubbery stuff. Is there a replacement material and where do I find it? Is that stuff glued in? Or should I just use clear silicone?
  9. Checked on it tonight....started with no beep. Hooked up a charger for good measure. But ran the boat last night for about 12 miles. So should be charged anyway. tester showed batteries at 95%. i have another theory..... we had heavy $^& rains a few days ago. I think the bolder pump may have gotten stuck running and then stopped. Then when the bulge levels came back up, it didn’t come on due to a problem with the float. When I checked the bilge the water was up over the pump and up to the what appears to be a separate level sensor. i wonder if the beep was due to bilge water level. Anyway, I need a new bilge float switch for sure. It will works manually but doesn’t seem to work on its own. i am gonna pull it out and inspect. yes...chasing theories
  10. just to be clear. When the key is turned to the first position, I get a test beep. It has always done that. This is not what I am talking about. When I start the motor, I get a long beep. Maybe three seconds and it stops. it seems to correlate with battery voltage. I have a digital meter on the dash. Boat is a 2002 Sunesta with a 350
  11. I have put many hours on this boat...first time it has ever done this.
  12. Right away. Only a few seconds. And does seem to correlate to voltage.
  13. What voltage should a battery read? I am running in the low 12s, but shows high 13s when running. seems a little low.
  14. I get the everything is working beep. But then I get a long beep after it starts. The beep stops. i think it might be low battery
  15. So, I have a beep when starting the boat. Just a beep. Fluids good. Any guesses?
  16. Funny to read all these posts The WHY doesn’t matter....it really doesn’t. but since everyone has asked.... I lack a trailer. But I have a very bright led light drain plug. Anyway, it is blown due to a wiring issue. I have a replacement. Need to swap it. And no...it doesn’t leak. trying to borrow a trailer....
  17. The reason doesn’t matter....trust me. The need does.
  18. I have one. Works great! We love it and use it all the time.
  19. Not likely. Boat really hasn’t gone anywhere. Entire river is at slow no wake. But next time I am out I’ll trim it up and take a gander. It’s been in the water for four weeks and hasn’t been above 5 mph.
  20. Did some googling and saw the same recommendations. ill dig into the switch issue
  21. From time to time, my boat would lose rpms and even do when going from N to F. Now it’s doing it a lot more. Idles fine. Is this an IAC issue then? I wouldn’t think so. Other ideas? Plugs are new. Gas is still old.
  22. Unless it can be done in the water, I can’t get it done.
