    Noisy water pump

    So all of a sudden our water pump will come on for about a second then go off. Before the only time you would hear it would be if you turned on the water. Now probably every two minutes it come on for a quick second When no one is using water. Also when we got on the boat today I heard a low motor noise and discovered it was the water pump when I open the faucet it tricked out until it charged the lines and the the low motor sound stopped. Have any of you experienced that. Wondering if the pump is going

    Recommendations for prop pitch control?

    Hi chap owners. I am getting really excited to get the boat in the water this weekend. As the new season is upon us, on the second year of owning my 246sii, I thought I would pose a question to all those who are savvy about speed and pitch control. Last year (at the beginning of the season) during boat orientation the dealer recommended 1/4 in raise on my prop when I reach above 3,000 rpms. However when adjust to about halfway from 1/8 to 1/4 and get into the high 30s the boat will begin to porpoise or the bow will begin to bounce slowly. I have been thinking of the following 3 options: 1. Do I just adjust the prop down until the boats stops porposing and accept the fact that my guage may be inaccurrate? 2. Do I just assume that when the porposing of the bow stops that it is at the proper pitch? 3. Assume and accept that the current pitch is okay for the particular speed based on the bouncing affect? Thanks for all your input. Here is what I have: 2012 246SSI with Volvo 5.7 GXi 320 HP.
