  1. I traded in a Nitro Fish and Ski for this one because it was getting old and my family wanted something a little more for cruising but the things I am complaining about are just things that are wrong with the design and engineering even if it was a TUG BOAT. If you read my original rant you would see most of the things I experienced, but there are more that I have not mentioned . Like a ski pole that has 1/2" threads so that most people who don't think of it can drop it into the socket and easily damage the threads. Like a Raymarine GPS-Sonar that does not go to the page you used last but you have to wait till it finds the satellites 1st before you get a menu to choose your screen again. I just want sonar 1st in my routine . I guess i'm just to demanding ?
  2. Just like thinking OnamaCare Had something to do with Obama caring.
  3. You right. Its like praising Trump in a MeToo forum.
  4. Thanks I will probably have to do something like that but it sure would be nice if they had a nice built in one. Like I have been saying, It looks like they buit them without ever trying them.
  5. I guess I'm going to have to give it a rest . You guys are like 'Beating a Dead Horse'. RIP
  6. Look on Youtube at 2016 Suncoast fish and ski and you will see a test done with a 200hp eng. The boat is identical but they put a5'6" trolling motor and 2 seats facing the rear at the back . they mention plenty of room for skis in the floor but you can't get them in . I wish I had Pics. of my boat's interior to show the changes they made to make it a fish and ski .
  7. Somehow I thought I would get that kind of answer . AND obviously you never had one or you are the troll they keep talking about .
  8. If you bought a cheap Zebco reel and the first time you went to use it , a .01cent spring broke , wouldn't you be pissed ?
  9. Are you guys listening at all ?? It is supposed to be a fish and ski . That is part of the problem .
  10. I did the first time and no help . I guess you don't see my side at all. You guys are still on my purchase while I am talking about the design . Think of it as a boat I did not buy but one I looked at and found all of these things wrong . THEN could you focus on the point. I feel like i'm talking to Pelosi .
  11. Ya Know ,Soldier, I've said it was my fault for buying the boat without using it 1st . I also made the same mistake ,Posting on a FORUM, for the first time . I thought I would get people, with the same experiences and even the same boat as me , to ask me questions and share their frustrations ,but like a political party most of the responses were critical and name calling before knowing or caring about all of the facts . I have not gotten into the amount of Emails I've sent and calls to their survey company who promised I would get a quick response to discuss my concerns . Finally after 2 months I got a voicemail from a Dan Osborne leaving his number which I have called about 3 times in the last two weeks and left my voicemail with my business and my cell number . I know they wont do anything about it but I asked for an engineer or designer just to get an idea of what they were thinking . I think that Osborne is just another customer relations guy that will tell me the same thing as the first one did, that I finally reached after the same type of efforts, right after buying the boat . Below is a copy of the letter I received after taking the survey . Thank You! John F. & Brian J., Thank you for participating in the Chaparral Boats Inc. customer satisfaction survey process.

  12. I am a 77 year old guy who does not have to worry about money and, that, is one of the reasons I bought a new good reputation boat . I also have a 23 ft. Everglades in florida that I use 3 months a year a couple of times a week . So I know about wasting money. But the money did not come from anyone else's taxes so I can waste it if iI wish . I have friends that own Chaparral's and like them ,but they cant understand what they were thinking when they made mine . The only thing I can come up with is , they had this designed for a basic saltwater family boat and tried to make it a a FISH & SKI by putting a trolling motor and a ski pole on it . This is the 1st time I'v ever gotten on to a forum and I only thought I could find other exact boat owners to discuss my experiences . Not thinking I was jumping into a lion's den . Thanks to those that were understanding .
  13. Please someone explain to STRETCH ( I can see where he got his nickname) what I am trying to say. If I bought it or not it would still be a CRAP boat !
  14. It seems that you ride very HIGH in your Chap . looking down on all of us peons ! I pay cash for all of my purchases including my seven low end boats . Try paying attention to the point I'm trying to make and not to how much you can impress all of your friends . THANKS
