    Ski Locker Storage will NOT drain

    I have a 2016 H20 sport 21' and in the ski storage locker located between the captain and passenger seat will not drain. There is a drain in the aft wall however the problem is that the fuel tank is pushed up so close to the drain hole that it prevents any water from exiting into the bilge. I have contacted Chaparral about this and they sent me an email with pictures of how to fix. They show to drill a hole in the locker floor board just in front of the hole on the wall and that should do it. However, I have drilled into the floor 3 1/2" and it did not open up. I did not want to drill any deeper. Its so frustrating and now I have a 3" deep hole in my locker. Has anyone else had this problem? It appears that someone didn't take the time to make sure the tank was moved back away from the hole. Any help would be appreciated.

    deck boat

    I have a 1999 233 deck boat the forward storage compartment is holding water, for the life of me I cannot figure out how the water is supposed to exit the compartment I sure could use some help
  3. I am about to rebuild my water pump and would like to know what else makes good sense to replace or rebuild along the way. I own a 2004 Sunesta 236 and the engine compartment looks more accessible than it really is. I am already planning to replace the serpentine belt while I have the water pump bracket removed. Is there anything else I should consider replacing so I do not have to repeat some of the same work and contortions it takes for me to reach certain parts? I considered the thermostat but it appears to be located more toward the top of the motor (if I have in fact located it). Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you!

    Minor incident or major disaster?

    Hey y'all, so another day brings another challenge!! I just discover I have water.. And of course, mildew, in the storage under the forward berth. It seems that the water is coming from the anchor locker above?!?! Is that even possible? And if it is, is it a minor incident or a major problem? I just discover that tonight while looking for something. I didn't have the time and enough light to look into the locker. We haven't used the anchor since we bought the boat. Anybody encountered a similar situation? Thanks!

    Water in the bilge

    Finally got the new-to-me boat out on the water for an extended period of time over the weekend and everything worked pretty well. The only real issue I have that concerns me is that the bilge pump kicked on at one point after we were out for about 40-minutes or so. It may have run more, but that's the only time I noticed it running. I have a couple of questions for everyone: 1. The boat is only a 2010 with about 340 hours. Could the bellows be going bad already? Other potential sources of the leak? 2. I did fill up all onboard coolers with ice the night before and again the day of, so probably 80-100 pounds of ice total. Could this be the source of my water? I thought these were supposed to drain overboard, not into the bilge. I'm planning a trip to Table Rock Lake in two weeks where the boat will be docked and in the water for a solid week straight. Should I be concerned? If there is a bit of water coming into the bilge, should I worry about the pump doing it's job and handling it?

    Water draining

    I have a '95 18' with the SS motor. I noticed last season some water leaking from under the dash while I was driving. Thought maybe water was collecting some where under neath the horn vent from the rain. I had just taken it out for the first time this last Wednesday, I know I had the boat covered with a tarp before taking it out. Thought this would solve my problem. Once got the boat launched and was getting up to speed, the same problem recurred. I had my friend drive while I looked under the dash to see where the water was coming from. There was a 1/4" hose gushing water out while in drive. I couldn't see where the hose was disconnected from. Has any one had this problem? My radio and speedometer has been shorted out cause of this. The hose is ran through the main wire harness that feeds back to the batterie... Appreciate any feed back. Thanks
  7. Hey guys, Have a small amount of water (2-3") sitting beneath the engine of my 2006 Chap 190 SSI. Have run the bilge pump but the water remains. Not sure how to remove it.. The Manual says that a small amount of water is "normal", but I still would like to learn how to properly remove it.

    No water to faucets Sig 260

    We just purchased a 2005 Signature 260. For the life of me I can not figure out why we are not getting water to either the galley faucet or the head faucet. Our transom shower works as does the bar sink. The water pumps works. We are getting water to the toilet itself though??? Any suggestions are appreciated.
  9. So I bought my 2000 240SSi last September & hoped I bought a great boat. One owner, service by the dealer, rack kept under cover... Just finally getting into some of the nitty gritty on the boat & finding things yo never want to see. Water in parts of the hull! The port side of the boat appears to be really dry, but found water under the gas tank & inside the starboard side floor. This is how I found it. Any suggestions or info on how these hulls are built is appreciated. 1) Removed the bilge pump from the small ledge in front of the gas tank. When I took out one if the screws water started coming out of the hole. I drilled a 1 1/2" hole and saw standing water. Using a shop vac I sucked out must of the water. It appears that the prior owner installed a drain in the ski locker that drained straight into this area?!? This year & model boat didn't come with a drain in the ski locker did it? The hole definitely looks like the work of a paddle bit. Plan for this area is to remove the fuel tank at the end of season here, cut an access hole (probably 12" x 12" or so) to better assess any damage, dry out, repair and re-fiberglass. 2) Removed the gas tank access cover to replace the fuel pick up & fuel as preventive maintenance since I just had to replace the electric fuel pump. Again water out of screw hole... ughh! (Previously I removed the carpeted piece or plywood between the drivers seat and storage area in the bow. I did notice some water in these 4 holes. I blew these dry & used 5200 when I replaced). To So I bought my 2000 240SSi last September & hoped I bought a great boat. One owner, service by the dealer, rack kept under cover...

I blew these dry & used 5200 when I replaced). To invetigate some, I removed the drivers seat, no caulking. There was a 1" plastic plug under the seat base that appears it leads to a foam filled cavity, soaked. I drilled a 2" hole under the seat base & found wet plywood. Under the bottom layer of fiberglass the foam was dry (finally a break). I poked the screw driver through the foam to the 1" hole and found it was all dry in between. Must be decent quality closed cell foam. I still have wet plywood between 2 layers of glass. Not sure exactly how it got in & I'll continue to investigate. I'm sure the hole under the drivers seat, the 4 screws in between the drivers area and storage area that were loose are some of the areas. Any ideas on this area are appreciate since there is no access.
  10. Hello All. I am the proud new owner of a new 2012 216 ssi. My research on this forum was instrumental in my purchase decision. Thanks for all the great content!!! Now that the weather is somewhat warm, we have had her out a few times and I discovered the universal unwanted passenger.....water in the bilge. Now I am new at this, but pretty sure that any amount of water in the bilge of a brand new boat is not normal. She is stored at an indoor climate controlled facility (no rain water), has not been washed in weeks (no hose water), no one has boarded from the lake (wet). So, I don't see any reason for there to be water in the bilge. We have run 4 times about 1.5 hours each. The last run resulted in 30 seconds of water draining full force from the bilge drain hole. The simple solution would be to pull her back to the dealer; however they are 100 miles away, so I wanted to pick yall's brain first. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Water Holding Tank

    What do you put in the water tank to keep the water clean/safe to drink and do you have to check it occasionally, I have had some folks say bleach, and then some have said aqua tabs. Any suggestions?
