  1. Our 2004 Chaparral 290 Signature is undergoing surgery! The fuel tank has to be replaced due to a persistent leak identified last October. Fiberglass workers have already removed the Aft cabin floor to expose the tank (and ventilate). Talks now indicate that further cuts will be necessary to get the tank out. They are proposing to remove the bulkhead in the engine compartment (mid cockpit) in order to be able to maneuver the tank out but at additional cost and time and obvious surface area intrusion. So the question to the forum is,: 1) Does this seem extreme for those who have been
  2. I have a 2016 H20 sport 21' and in the ski storage locker located between the captain and passenger seat will not drain. There is a drain in the aft wall however the problem is that the fuel tank is pushed up so close to the drain hole that it prevents any water from exiting into the bilge. I have contacted Chaparral about this and they sent me an email with pictures of how to fix. They show to drill a hole in the locker floor board just in front of the hole on the wall and that should do it. However, I have drilled into the floor 3 1/2" and it did not open up. I did not want to drill any deep
  3. This topic is very close to my heart as just had the distasterous news that my gas tank is leaking and the mechanic says it is virtually impossible to remove without destroying half the boat, if it doesn't blow up meantime! What a terrible design an aluminium tank sitting half in the bilge extending right under the cabin requiring extensive cutting of the structure as well as removal of engine and all of the ancillaries in the hull close by, to enable its replacement. Wrong design, wrong material, all wrong. Apart from us being nearly killed I now have a boat all but valueless as the cost to
  4. Hello All, I thought I’d check with the Chaparral Owner’s community to get feedback regarding a quite major problem I’m having (at least by my standards). I have a 2000 Sig 300, Twin Gas Engines, with about 700 hours. The boat is moored at Lake Coeur d’Alene, in North Idaho, fresh water. I’m the second owner, and have owned the boat since 2003. We spend all of our summer free time aboard her, and until now, have had very few problems, and loved the boat immensely. A couple of weeks prior to the Fourth of July, we were out on the lake. My wife was down in the cabin, and complained to me of smel
  5. What do you put in the water tank to keep the water clean/safe to drink and do you have to check it occasionally, I have had some folks say bleach, and then some have said aqua tabs. Any suggestions?
  6. Has anyone removed the waste holding tank? Am I safe to assume it will come out thru the access hatch under the lower berth as well as the fresh water tank from the adjoining hatch? I have a 1993 Chap 300 Sig Thanks in advance for the help.
