  1. 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 was awesome. Have a great summer!
  2. Call marine parts express, and ask for jd., he will know.
  3. I was just thinking of that.!
  4. I have ordered from spectrum. I gave them the hull# and they supplied the correct color.
  5. 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?
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. I had a 2003 280 sig. At around 25 mph was my most efficient, rpms around 3600. 15 mph? You wont even be on plane.
  10. I did the tour when we bought our boat. It is fun. The factory really is in the middle of nowhere. Robin will take you around on a golfcart. They pretty much show you everything. When we lived in Orlando we went to the Regal factory......they showed us the upholstery dept.
  11. I had a similar problem,same boat. The dealer came down and re synced everything. I was ok after that. I kept breaking the sprocket that controls the speedo. I hooked up an NMEA system now get everything through GPS and Volvo instruments. Nice boat...enjoy.
  12. It was 3-5 in his dreams! Going back I could not say as my boat got stuck in Bimini. But maybe it was 3ft tops on the way over
  13. We can go to Islemorada first. If we leave at a decent hour we can go halfway drop an anchor go swimming and have lunch then continue. Or we can spend all the time in key largo. You may even want to spend a day at the sandbar here. check out haulover sandbar on youtube
  14. Sorry, I dont log in a lot. So far it looks like three of us. What day do you want to get down here and I can make some resrvations?
