    Chaparral's quality going downhill

    The forum is only as good as its participants. I talk with a lot of Chaparral owners down in Florida and they do not even know this forum exists. I was a moderator on the Crownline forum years ago...it was strictly monitored. I am sure this one is too s from time to time posts are deleted. I find the forum entertaining, with some good tech knowledge thrown in from time to time. The social aspect, such as getting to meet Jeff and Larry in the Bahamas is a great pus also. Bahamas 2019....Lets do it again!

    It is interesting that Chaparral lets you complain about their boats on their website. Not every manufacturer would let you do that.

    Just ordered my first drone

    It was an inexpensive hubsan drone. For the money it is a great first drone, feature packed and easy to use. i was over water and it just developed a mind of its own an did a header into the ICW . Thankfully it did not hit anybody on the way down.

    Overheating at high speed

    When you flush your engines you are forcing water into the engines and the engines are not the pressure of powering the boat. I dont think your transducer has anything to do with it. You could put a heat gun on them to make sure they are overheating, not just a faulty sensor. It is odd for it to happen to both engines at once. Check for blockages

    2013 310 fresh water pump

    I can hear the pump on the starboard side in the front. Where exactly is it and how do I access it?

    Replacement carpet or seadek?

    I went with Plasteak. Looks great, feels great....would not do it again. I bought the cool teak.......its not cool. It gets real hot, I am in Florida. When you get out of the water on the swim platform, you need to wet it down or it is too hot to stand on.

    330 Signature Davits

    When I lived in New Rochelle Block and Essex were two of my favorite destinations. One year going through Fisher Island sound we saw a sub come up..it was awesome. Have a great summer!

    2004 Chaparral 330 Signature Hull Color

    I have ordered from spectrum. I gave them the hull# and they supplied the correct color.

    Wax/compound

    I use a mikita variable low speed buffer. It is quieter and lighter. The harbor freight model....for the price is great. If you are using the wool pads,you should get that tool to clean the pad. Nowadays I do one side, than come back the next day and do the other. We are getting to that point in the year, maybe we should have a thread to post nice shiny pics of our boats?

    Wax/compound

    My image? Well I dont think I will be on the cover of GQ at anytime soon. After dealing with cancer twice... I am just glad to see something! HM.....maybe I will have to wax more often! I am a sucker for new polishes, my goal this year is to finish what I have before I buy anything else. Although i did pick up this polymer spray and wipe at the west palm beach show.

    Wax/compound

    I live in South Florida and take the boat out every week. Waxing the boat every six months and washing weekly with a hot sauce wipedown seems to work fine. Just washed it today and water beads right up. I can see a clear image of myself on the side of the boat.c I am quite satisfied with my six month schedule.

    Wax/compound

    I have used all different brands, most are pretty good but down in Florida last 6 months. Some say wax with carnauba will yellow...I dont think it lasts long enough to do that. I have used Zaino good products, Sal is a funny guy if you call them. Their carwash is amazing. I used a product called Driven which I like very much. If you polish/wax every six months, it probably doesnt matter what you use.
