  1. Well after 4 years with my 215ssi I took the plunge and bought a 330 Signature to explore the beautiful Puget Sound! I have been searching and reading up on this boat from the forum, and have gotten tons of info. I do have a couple questions identifying some things and the old boat owner isn't the best and communication so thought I would try here. Does anyone know what these are? Also any ideas or suggestions on how you organize your cabin and mount a grill Thank you in advance, Jeff
  2. Looking to see if anyone out there has any experience on selecting the prop pitch for the Sig 350 (formerly the 330 before 2011). I have twin Merc 5.7 Mag 350 Bravo 3 and am using stainless 24 pitch props (came with boat). I am thinking of lowing the pitch slightly to get on plane quicker. I'm ok when the boat is not heavily loaded (just 4 of us) but once i add a few more people it obviously slows me down. I notice that many other cruisers of similar size that i ride in have little issue getting up on plane with the same 5.7 engines and 12 or more people . For me it takes a lot more time just to get up on plane. It takes the engines some time to spool the RPM's to the 3000 plus range i need to get onto plane. I know there are a lot of other factors such as weight distribution. Good news is the boat has tons of seating with both port and aft seats near the rear of the cockpit bad news is does put some additional weight to the rear. I actively manage the trim tabs but its still not enough. I am looking for advice on what anyone else with this boat or similar has done. Thanks for your help!
  3. First of all, thanks to this awesome forum. I've learned so much in the 5 years with my '01 Sig 260. I got the good news last weekend from the admiral that it's time for an upgrade. We have our eyes set on a '06ish 330. I've read all your horror stories about the XDP drives, and will be avoiding those at all costs. I just want to confirm that the DP drives are different and are ok? One of the boats we are considering has the Volvo 5.7 GI engines with DP drives I believe. In addition to the drives, it sounds like the thermostats on the fridges are a common problem. Lastly, if anybody has any advice or experiences about buying out of area feel free to jump in. From what I've learned so far: among other things, I should try to be present for the independent survey and it needs to be shrink wrapped for transport. Thanks so much.
