  1. New to me boat. A '99 2130SS. Has the 5.7 GSi motor with Volvo Penta DP. 180hrs on the boat, 0 hrs on a brand new (not rebuilt) motor. Came with a Ski Pylon installed already so I can try wakeboarding (I am not THAT old)! Upgrading from a '86 17ft bass boat. I did read every thread I could find reserching this boat before I bought it, and think I got a good deal with a good motor and the DP option seems nice. First I/O so have also been researching maintenance/upkeep. Will need that tool to pull the props... Anyways, it is winterized now so not taking it out till sprin
  2. Hello Fellow Chappy Fans and Owners, It's been a very long time since last I posted on the Chaparral Forum and for good reason. I have been busy building a startup "RaftUp" and namesake app for recreational boaters could use to keep in touch and potentially add some safety. I am a big Chaparral Boating fan and ex-owner "I sold my boat for my startup", a big portion of what drove me to build this technology was inspired by my long experience with all things boating, boat ownership of a 2008 Chaparral 276 SSX and the Chaparral Community. I know that there are several wonderful navigati

  5. I've been having good luck with our plow anchor. It even held the first time we used it in 20+ MPH winds. Last night we anchored at an island on Lake Texoma with the stern to the beach. The muddy bottom has a pretty steep grade until it gets to about 4 feet or so. We dropped anchor in approx 14 feet of water then backed toward the beach until we were in about 5-6 feet of water. Trouble is, we reached that depth rather quickly and before I was able to put out much rode. I estimate I only had about 15 feet of chain and 25 feet of rode played out. I took a stern anchor (box anchor type) and wa
  6. I guess it doesn't hurt to post, but my wife and I decided we will be visiting Table Rock sometime in July. As of right now we are looking at the region closer to Branson (near Still Waters Resort) but would be open to other regions of the lake. Does anyone know of any friends/family/owners that rent their house and dock somewhere in this region? We are looking to house approximately 14 or so people for a 5/6 night length. Thanks Mid-West group for any suggestions/references in advance.
  7. I live in Wisconsin and boat on the Madison Lakes. Unfortunately, the lakeside attractions are sparse, due mostly to the local government agencies having a giant tree trunk up their arses. So, I started checking out surrounding areas for new lakes to explore. Finding the local knowledge on the lakes is a bit more challenging. Then I came across Active Captain: https://activecaptain.com/index.php I searched and didn't see much mention of it here. My area doesn't seem to have a large catalog of data points, but in other more popular areas, there seem to be many bits of coveted local knowle
