I have a 2015 277 that I have been having a number of overheating issues. First the dealer thought it was an impeller, so we replaced it. Then it continued. They thought that maybe the impeller broke apart and some of the pieces clogged the cooling system, so they took the entire cooling system apart. My boat worked fine for 2 months, then last night it overheated again. It is extremely frustrating to have paid over $100,000 for a boat that constantly has to be towed in. Worse than that, our dealer does not offer any towing service to the dealership, so we have to get Seatow to tow us to the dealership. It is about a 2-3 hour tow ride to the dealership and they require someone to be on the boat. Anyone else have these problems or did I just get a lemon? Also, what kind of idiot designs these engines with an impeller that has to be replaced so often? My last Chaparral didn't have one and we never had problems. I feel like I made a huge mistake buying this boat.
Hi folks - Just purchased a 2013 277 SSX from down south (I'm in the northeast). Putting on the bimini cover, I see two hanging plastic buckles (aft) that don't seem to connect anywhere. But they hang directly at head height, which is obviously not intended. I'm thinking maybe I'm missing some straps that connect it to the arch to snug it down? Can't find anything online, and pics aren't detailed enough to make it out. Any help appreciated. Thanks
LanierMike posted a topic in Boat TalkI have an '03 Sunesta 263 with the 350MPI. Love the wraparound seating and overall utility. Generally have 8 on board (4 adults 4 kids) and a mix of just riding around with an increasing amount of water sports as my kids are getting older (10 and 8). I'd love an arch and a little more pulling power. No real direct replacement for this boat in the '10-'13 (I want to buy used) model years as the 264 is a tad shorter, the 284 is bigger ('9 beam) and the 277 doesn't have the wide bow. SO, I guess the 264 is probably the best upgrade choice? Would love input on this as well as going with the Volvo 6.0L versus Merc 8.2 regardless of which boat I upgrade to. Appreciate any and all thoughts!
