    ARCH SPEAKERS

    The question mark is meant to stress the surprise that the company (Rockville) does not make flat arch mount, not ask if they do. Sorry if that was confusing. My problem is not the method of how to attach o the arch, (there are no holes, but I have no problem drilling them), it is what do i attach to the arch, since the speakers only came with tubular mounts? I though someone out there with an 287 SSX might have done this before.

    ARCH SPEAKERS

    I just want to say thanks to all for answering my questions. You guys have been right on with every answer and have helped tremendously. Thant being said, I just bought wake-board speakers for my 2012 287 SSX. The mounting brackets are for a tubular arch and mine is flat. The speaker company does not make a mount for the flat arch? Anyone with any experience with this situation? I am all ears.

    2012 287 SSX BLOWER MOTORS

    I have a 2012 287 SSX. I was a Sea Ray owner/enthusiast for years, and now I am fully converted, and loving everything about my Chaparral. Both blower motors are not working and switch stays lit? I checked the breakers and they seem ok? Is there a fuse anywhere? It is odd that they would both stop working simultaneously?

    UNDERWATER TRANSOM LIGHTS

    I am looking to install underwater transom lights on my 2012 287 SSX. from what I have read they are pretty easy to install I see a switch in the dash, but no lights in transom. Does anyone know if they are pre wired and where I would find that in the engine room/ Also any suggestions on lights? Looking for blue in color?

    No photo yet cecilmarine.com scroll down to bottom of page to "order Chaparral parts"
  8. I always have water in my swim deck cooler. I have snaked the line and when I run a hose through it seems clear. 75 % of the water drains out, but there is always some left which gets mold and I have to clean it with bleach each weekend.

    Transom Shower

    I am in the process of installing one now. Bought the cover and hand spray w/hose from Cecil marine on line (came in a kit) Drilled hole and installed cover yesterday. Discovered that the pex tubing that they used is slightly smaller that regular 1/2" pex that I purchased at local plumbing supply. And therefore the fitting also are smaller. Anyone know those specifics?

    HOLDING TANK PUMP OUT

    My first season with my 2012 287 SSX and i am loving it! I figured that I would pump out my tank because the guague said 3/4 full. I have a Vacuflush system but no maccerator. It seemed to take a super long time, like over 30 minutes. After i was done the hose leading to the pump out port seemed to be full. I've been a boater for over 30 years and never saw anything like that, although this is my first experience with a Vacuflush system. Is there something special that I was supposed to do?

    TACHOMETER

    i HAVE A 2012 287 SSX 8.1 VOLVO My tach on the dash is off about 1000 rpm lower than the tach on the digital read out? I know the digital one must be correct because the rpms as related to mph makes more sense I.e. 3000 at 30mph on the digital when the dial is about 2000 rpms I've heard that there is some kind of adjustment than can be made on the back of the unit? Anyone?

    UPGRADE TO STOCK STEREO 2012 287 SSX

    Good point! You mean cut a round hole in the aluminum and install a regular round recessed speaker?

    2012 287 SSX STARBORD BOW VINYL SEAT

    It was hard for me to blame him until now when the dealer sent me pics from before I bought the boat with no tear. Too late he has been paid and is gone I had my Sea Ray seats done last year and the match was terrible. That is why I am concerned
  14. when my 2012 287 SSX was transported from NC to NJ, the transporter tore my starboard bow seat cushion. My boat seats are white with black/grey trim, and were in mint condition before transport. Chaparral only carries the skins for four years and has told me to reach out to a local upholsterer. My local seat guy asked me to find out the color and manufacturer? Anyone have any idea? I seem to be getting nowhere with Chaparral.
  15. I am looking to upgrade my existing stereo on my 2012 287 SSX I purchased am amp and looking to get new speakers. Anyone know if they are 6.5 or 8"? I looked at parts manual and it does not say The boat is at my shore house and won't be there until Memorial Day Also can the aluminum arch accept wakeboard speakers? My arch is white and I can't find a matching touch up paint? Will take any help I can get. Thx
