    Will turn over but won’t start

    Thank you again!! We have the one that came with the boat. It’s a Garmin f/GPSMAP 5xx Series. Maybe 530. I’m not 100% sure though. It does cover the waters we run in but we haven’t played with it too much.

    Sorry for the long delay. The insurance ended up covering the engine under the collision that occurred. We ordered the engine in October and had to wait for Volvo to put them into production. We just got the boat back last week. Now for the breaking in period. Thank you all for all of your input on this!!!

    We are still waiting to hear. I will definitively let you know.

    Thank you so much. These are the things I need to be aware of before making the claim.

    That's correct. Called SeaTow to bring us in.

    Curt, no worries at all. I'm not really sure why it stopped turning over. Maybe from trying to start it again once the batteries were charged up? I'll have to search around for Volvo mechanics. They only charged us $900, luckily.

    I'm hoping so. I'm just worried they will find a way to not cover it. I guess it is all in the wording. I'm certainly in panic mode.

    I guess we can close this thread now. The boat needs a new engine. It can’t be rebuilt. We just got this boat in April and it’s heartbreaking because we’ve waited years to get it. Now we will have to save money over the winter to replace the engine. I would like to sincerely thank each of you for taking the time out to help us.

    Sent my husband screenshots of the replies. He said “What I meant was that was for the brake down and rebuild with gaskets. “

    I also don’t get how it went from turning over and not starting to hydrolocked.

    My husband spoke with them yesterday. He told me this was just to flush everything out and doesn’t include replacing anything because they don’t know if this will fix the problem. I assume they will be pulling the motor (?) and this is mostly labor costs. They also said they’ve never seen sand in the exhaust manifold before. From my understanding, this is a dealership who is certified to work on Chaparrals. My husband is worried that the engine may have been damaged (but I don’t have the knowledge to know why).

    Correction, $2600 to flush it and hope that it fixes the problem. Very nervous. Does anyone know how bad this can be? Thanks
