  1. Do the aluminum tanks have a bung or other provision for attaching this bonding wire? Where would I look for this? I have a boat with an aluminum tank that is not original and I do not believe it is bonded.
  2. If you can’t get her level by moving stuff around, add batteries or switch to heavier ones.
  3. Listing to port or just listing in general??
  4. We are south side and slip it at Eldean. I am sure we crossed each other’s wakes at some point this season. Ours is already pulled for the season but I will keep an eye out for that red beauty next year! Since this thread got bumped I might as well give a one season review of VC-17. It is definitely a good way to go for this area. The plaining surfaces of the hull were pretty much spotless when it came out after almost exactly 3 months in the water. A very quick pass with a power washer and they were good. The transom and other areas that don’t get water passing by them at full spee
  5. How do I tell? The orange wire marked digital trim right next to the one I am connected to was one of the first things I questioned. The dealer said a digital trim will have a three wire connector there and a non-adjustable trim sender. My sender is the slotted adjustable kind and there are only two wires coming off of it.
  6. Thanks for posting that @Mhenry1282, however my merc setup does not seem to have much in common with your vp. FWIW, I still have not figured this out or had a chance to get it back to the dealer. The gauge does the self test correctly when powered on so I believe that rules it out. The internals on the sender itself were dry and looked fine. A DVM hooked up to the sender leads where they connect to the transom harness on the engine show a smoothly varying impedance as the sender is rotated. I also noticed my trim limit is no longer functioning. I can raise the drive all the way to t
  7. Solid solution! Quick question, do you use a bow cover, and if so, how do you use the center cover support with the filler cushions in place?
  8. Yeah, agreed! And they are on board with this. Unfortunately, due to a long and boring story, I am not able to get the boat back to them until we pull it for the season. Kinda hoping it is something easy and I could fix it myself in the meantime.
  9. This was after my engine had to be pulled and reinstalled (don't ask). Trim senders are only 3 years old and were reading consistently before the work. There are three wires on the engine harness where the sender connects; one orange that is unlabeled, one orange labeled digital trim, and one black unlabeled. Currently the two sender wires are connected to the black and orange unlabeled wires. Is that right, or should it be connected to the orange digital trim wire? I have the square smart craft gauges with the digital readout below the tach and the trim all by itself. If it is connected
  10. Mine came with short legs, 12" or so, that can be swapped out with the normal ones to hold the bimini just above the rear seat.
  11. I don’t have any personal experience with it, yet, but the Weber q series seems to have quite a marine following: https://www.thehulltruth.com/boating-forum/685947-ultimate-boat-grill.html
  12. Try sticking the cut off end of a zip tie in each hole. I have had great luck with this in fiberglass.
  13. Is that a chaparral part number? I have had much better luck sourcing parts through the original manufacturer (ie not Chaparral) and their part number. Easier to get and much cheaper this way. Typically you can find what you need printed somewhere on the part itself.
