  1. Hi everyone. I'm a newbie here and, well, this is my very first post. I'm looking for a nice used Xtreme. Preferably 2009 - 2011 244 but would consider 224 or even 264 if it was the right boat, and price. I'm located near Toronto, ON but willing to travel reasonable (or even maybe unreasonable) distance for the right boat. Any insight or help would be much appreciated as I've scoured the www and coming up (mostly) empty handed.
  2. My new-to-me 244 Sunesta has a belt squeal that happens at high rpm's. I assume it's the serpentine belt (that's the only belt on this thing). If I back off of the speed a bit the squeal will stop. I've been advised in a different thread to just go ahead and replace the belt. They aren't too expensive and it looks to be a fairly straightforward job. I've never done this before and wondered if anyone here had. Any suggestions/tips/thoughts? I want to avoid screwing something up. I've only had the new boat out once and would like to get a lot of use out of it this summer. I have a week booked on Table Rock next month and want it to be ready to go. Thanks!
  3. I just had a Garmin GPSMAP 547 installed in-dash on my 244 Sunesta. I love the look of the unit, but am confused about functionality and operation. Dealer gave me no information or help on the unit. I've done a bit of research on the web and find that it is a NMEA 2000 unit and that I will need a NMEA 2000 starter kit and and engine gateway along with a special NMEA 2000 transducer to get it to do what I really want it to do which is give me the engine readouts, water temp and depth. It is already a nice chart plotter. Does this sound correct to anyone who knows about NMEA 2000 units? Is the engine gateway difficult to install or should I hire a pro? Thanks in advance for your help and advice!

  5. I want to replace the fixed board racks on my 2008 244 Extreme with the folding ones that came on the 2009's and up. Chaparral says they are not available. Does any one have experience with this! If not from Chaparral or Extreme Tower Products, how about another brand? Thanks, Roger
