    2017 Signature 310 Trailer

    My previous Chaparral was on an EZ Loader. Great trailer. Agree to the suggestions for E over H brakes. brick

    If your boat is recent, you may be able to obtain through your dealer and Chaparral. brick

    Can a TACO pull my 244 Sunesta?

    I think a lot depends on what type of towing you will be doing. A few miles on low speed city streets is very different from towing hundreds of miles at interstate speeds. i prefer to tow with excess tow capacity. brick

    We discussed that option, too. With retirement getting closer, we have a lot of options to consider. brick

    Time to say goodby

    I am beginning to have the same questions regarding how much longer I will keep my 220 SSi. We only went out two times last year, due to a new Airstream and my wife having surgery at the beginning of July. Our kids have graduated and moved away, so we no longer have a “boat full of teenagers” to drag around the lake. We are also considering downsizing the house, prior to retirement, which then brings the issue of where to store a boat. Will see what this summer brings... brick
  11. You will sleep better if you simply drain the block. Takes 5 minutes. If your boat is on a lift, put it in the water overnight. Lake water is above freezing and keeps the block warm. Does not help any onboard water system if you have a galley or head. brick

    Weigh your boat and trailer. My 220 SSi weighs 6000 lbs, loaded for the lake. I think you will be stretching it with the toy taco... brick

    Understanding propellers and labbing, a PSA

    I had my B3 props lab’d back in 2005 by Bronson Hill Propellers. They were balanced and polished. I gained maybe 100 to 200 RPM @WOT, but the biggest difference was the balancing. The drive is soooo much smoother with balanced props. And the polished propset looks good on the trailer. brick

    1994 Chaparral 190 SL Limited Prop

    Drive ratio and current prop info would help. The most common props are a 14.25 X 19 inch pitch or a 14.25 X 21 inch pitch. brick
