  1. For coastal areas I would pick an OB.
  2. Just be sure you got to every drain point on your motor.
  3. I suspect it will be hard to find a NOS ESP and probably even harder to get Chaparral to build one. You might find one at a boat salvage yard. SwimPlatforms.com may be your only option. Great boat... brick
  4. I sent an email to a Marketing director at Chaparral and asked for support to get this site back on track. Hopefully Chaparral will hear our request. brick
  5. If it was not winterized and the block has cracked, you will know very quickly. If it has the “single point” drain, it is quick and easy to winterize. If it has a B3 drive there are two blue plugs on the raw water pump that are easily overlooked. brick
  6. I have a New Dimension tower on my 2005 220 SSi with an integrated bimini. It folds forwards or backwards for storage. It is also available using the original bimini top. The yellow 220 on their website is my boat, and there are pictures with the tower folded. I can fold it by myself when folding to the rear. Folding forwards is a two person job. brick
  7. Filled with foam. Bad idea to drill that area.

    Trailer TPMS

    I have a TST system. Almost 3 years old and on original batteries. Easy to replace batteries. Flawless.
  9. I think ( but not 100%) that it is simply a 12 volt MR16 Halogen lamp. These lamps have a 3 letter part number that identifies the wattage and beam spread. Something like “BAB” or “EXN”. I have not had to take mine apart, but there are screws on the bezel. Remember not to touch the halogen burner with your fingers. The outer reflector is OK to touch. Clean cotton gloves are a good choice when installing.
  10. Did you ever buy this boat? What is your fuel burn?
  11. That makes sense. Maybe ask the dealership why they include the warning?
  12. Why do you need to lower the boat to work on it?
  13. Probably. They let me in... brick
  14. On a Merc, the ECU does not fire if voltage drops below a threshold.
  15. What battery are you using? Merc 5.0 and 5.7 ECU ‘s require 950 MCA marine starting battery. My 350 MAG/MPI cranks a bunch if I forget to switch back from battery #2, which is a deep cycle. brick
