    2010 Signature 310

    Can the Chaparral folks weigh in with response here? We are the second owner of a 2010 Signature 310. It’s like it doesn’t exist though because there isn’t an owner manual or a parts guide on this site for the 2010 Signature 310. Was it a half year or something? The redesign shows up in the 2011 model year on here, but the 2010 seems to not exist. What gives?

    310 Signature Lake Erie

    We have been looking at the 310 Signature. We are docked near Fairport Harbor, Lake Erie. I would like to know if any of you have a 310 Chap and use it in Lake Erie. How does it handle the waves and chop in Lake Erie? One other question, I know these are not fishing vessels however I would like to do some casting from this boat. Have any of you tried casting from the bow of your 310? Just curious. Thank you very much

    TOO MUCH HP???

    Looking for some help here. I am looking at a 2011 310 Signature. The boat has twin 6.2L engines with 54 Hours on them. However I recalled they never offered that boat with those engines. I asked the current owner and he said they were in there when he bought the boat. I called Chaparral support and sure enough the boat came with 5.0L Mercs. Can the 2011 310 Handle that much HP? The current brochure shows max HP at 600. How big of a deal is it to get a boat with an extra 40 HP? Should I stay clear of the boat?
  5. Ok so here is a loaded question. I have been looking at a bunch of boats transitioning from my 256 ssi (now sold) to a cruiser. Comparing a 2012 cruisers yatchs 310 express to a 2011 chaparral 310 signature. The cruisers has 320 fresh water hours on twin Volvo penta 5.0's no trailer which is fine since I'm in the salt water area with one in and one out a year. The Chap has a trailer and 54 fresh water hours twin 6.2's. The chap is 18k more. The seating arrangement on the Cruisers and the interior of the Cruisers is better holding 2 more top side and a more functional settee. Which is good since we often hold a lot of people. How do the two stack up as far as ride especially in the rough stuff? How about quality? The electrical on the Cruisers looks impeccable. Any feedback would be great. Thank you

    2006 Signature 310 Air Horn Issue

    One day it was working fine. Next day, nothing from the horn itself, but I hear something that sounds like "PFFFFT". I'm thinking it may be the compressor or air hose, but where is it located? Thanks in advance for your assistance.
  7. OK, old Man Murphy has been paying me multiple boat visits lately, and I'm hoping that someone has had a similar experience that can help with my generator problem. I have a 2008 Kohler 5ECD, and it's been running great. As stated, Murphy paid a visit to the boat, so I had a bunch of maintenance activities, so I decided I'd replace the Zinc Anode on the generator and flush and refill the coolant. As you can probably tell where this is going, I didn't do my homework, and only found out about the air lock problem on these units after I noticed the reservoir bottle boiling and spilling over into the bilge. After trying various tricks mentioned by other online on bleeding the air, I finally went to the auto part store and rented a radiator pressure tester. Got it up to 16 lbs as was mentioned as a possible solution to break the air lock. I finally talked to a local generator mechanic, and he said he runs into the airlock all the time, and the way he handles it is lets the coolant heat up, flow into the overflow bottle, then let it suck it back out of the bottle as it cools. He indicated I'd probably have to do this a few times. This is where my problem starts. I started this procedure, and I now have a leak at the cap connection. I've bought another cap, same issue. This started happening right after I put the tester on, so I'm wondering if I somehow put a groove into the neck and the cap won't seal. Obviously, if there is no seal, it can't flow into the bottle and back out again. I did put a towel on the cap, and put pressed down on it, and it flowed into the bottle, but it never flowed back out, because it wasn't tight. My questions: 1. Is it possible that I put a knick in the manifold cap connection by using the tester, making it en-even so a seal can form? 2. If I did do that, can I slowly try to even out the connection to get a good seal on the cap? I've been playing around with that this afternoon evening, and I seem to be making a bit of progress, not nearly as much coolant is leaking out of the cap. I've also used pliers to bend the ears on the cap to make it tighter. 3. Do I need to worry about running the generator so many times without a load. Basically, what I do is start it up, and let it get hot enough until the coolant leaks out from the cap, Any where from 3-7 minutes depending on how cool it was when I start. The unit never shuts down with codes or anything, I'm shutting it down manually. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated, as we are coming up on the busy boating time here in Florida and with out AC, our time rafting up will be extremely limited. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    A/C Breaker

    My A/C breaker on the panel keeps popping on my 08 310. The A/C ran great all weekend, and went to put the boat in the lift, and realized it wasn't running and was hot in the cabin. Saw the switch was off, put in on and instantly closed back to off. This is on the shore power side, didn't try the generator side. I'm wondering if the pump is gone, we bought the boat new in 09, and the A/C units down here get a ton of usage during the summer. Trying to see if anyone else has experienced this and what the problem was. Thanks in advance for any assistance.
  9. Has anyone had the problem that the Empty Green status light on the holding tank monitor in the head stays on? I know the tank isn't empty by physically taking a light and looking at it. I never run the risk of getting to 3/4, so don't know if that or the full works or not. I'll probably fill with water this weekend while at the pump out dock to see if those work, since they are the most important. But thought I'd see if anyone had encountered the constant on Empty indicator problem. Thanks in advance for any help.
