  1. I wanted to get one like the ones they blast off at the hockey games so my boat friends get off my back! LOL
  2. Good point...I will check it out after the thaw...Thanks, R
  3. Any suggestions about replacing a factory horn on a 270 SIG? All of my boat neighbors laugh at me and make fun of my high pitched, emasculate horn...
  4. I ordered one too! Thanks for sharing! Had one on my Robalo CC and it makes steering super precision. Once you have one you miss not having it...
  5. I have been following this topic because leaking fuel tanks are serious and life threatening. I would think there would be strict regulations on Boatbuilders. Lifting the hatch to vent the bilge is great but what about while on plane? I have been reading that water in the bilge along the sides of an aluminum fuel tank, with bilge water electricly charged , is the corrosion culprit. Add salt water and the corrosion process speeds up. Why don't Boatbuilders seal off the tank area and keep water away from sitting under the tank? Or lift up the mounts above normal bilge water depth. It sounds
  6. Such great advice!!! Thank you and have a great Sunday!!!
  7. Thanks so much Wingnut! Sorry for the late reply, i had a full knee joint replaced last Monday, part of my 63 year maintenance plan! LOL I think I will need help to do this since the B3 is approx. 300 lbs. What is the risk of leaving it up and can it wait until December without damage? As always, thanks for your expertise advise! Randy
  8. With my B3 all the way up in trailering postion, I have the split exaust bellows and the bellow going into the engine is wide open for a possible critter to go into it. I laid a couple nuggets of moth balls at the opening but I am wondering if they got into it could they do any damage? I can't put the drive down, the boat is wrapped and the batteries are disconnected. Should I plug up the opening?
  9. Manards sells these for $15. I put one on my lawn tractor and drive it just like a zero turn... I had a suicide knob on my Roballo O/B and miss it.
  10. I decided to bite the bullet and trailer my cruiser 3 hours to a certified Chaparral Dealer for 300 hour maintenance service. I know the dealer since i purchased my 2016 Robalo from them and had them service it every year. Since I bought the 270 last May in Indiana, I have no record on the service except a paint marker on the oil filter "189.9 hrs with a smily face". Of course the Indiana dealer said all services were performed and the way the boat runs, i believe them. I got lucky so far, no major problems. I am a maintenance fanatic and i believe in keeping my toys maintained so they work w

  12. Thats unbelievable that any boater could be so stupid! Glad your friend caught up with him. He should pay dearly. Glad no one was hurt!
