  1. Hello guys! I am now the proud owner of a PRISTINE Chaparral 1995 2130ss in the teal and gold color scheme. It is a gorgeous color combo and this boat is especially beautiful! I am the second owner and the boat has sat in indoor storage for the past 11 years. The boat only has 180 original hours and has no blemsihes, dings, fading, etc. The upholstery looks factory as does the gelcoat. The motor is a 5.7l GM block with a yamaha outdrive. All the electrical works (lights, blower, bilge, trim, etc.), the throttle shifts smooth as butter, and the steering is silky smooth as well. The motor does have a crack in the riser and may have other damage as well. This is no big deal as I have a 5.7l Mercruiser and alpha one outdrive that are in great, working condition with only 400 hours. The Mercruiser came off of a 1996 Regal donor junk boat. I will try to get the Yamaha working if I can, but if not, I will just swap the Merc in. If I do get it working, then I will have a decision to make as I have seen some Yamaha sterndrive parts for sale around the internet, and also I have read about people having sucess using Mercruiser parts (gimble bearing, exhaust manifolds, bellows, etc.) Apparently Yamaha got sued for being too similar to either Volvo or Merc, but they still make their outdrives overseas. Anyways, this will be my first real boat once I get everything squared away. I am a 20 y/o college kid who works and uses extra scholarship money to fund his passion! I've always loved Chaparral's because my dad a 1989 2100sx when I was a kid, so that led me to wanting a Chap. I got a great deal on this boat. Unfortunately the previous owner had health issues and recently passed away. That is why the boat sat for 11 years in dry storage. The boat even came with the Yamaha service manual, Chaparral manual, and maintenance/ cruise logs. I will post pictures once the boat is delivered to South Florida from Fort Walton Beach. A few questions: 1) If I swap the yamaha motor and drive with the Merc, I want to use the throttle currently on the 2130ss because the Mercruiser one is stiff and faded. This should work fine, except the Yamaha has the trailer trim button on the outdrive, where as the Merc has the button on the throttle. So my options are: 1) bypass the trim limit? 2) Use the boat without trailer trim. I have a dual axle trailer, so I really need trailer trim anyways? 3) Install another switch somewhere near the transom? Thanks, Drew

    1989 Yamaha Tach

    I have the digital tachometer, when I first turn on the key, 88 displays on the gauge then after a few seconds the display shows 0. I have power and ground to the tachometer. When I start the motor the displays remains at 0. The motor tilt indicator on the tachometer is working. Any ideas? Thanks

My Marina just called and told me that is leaking oil on to the boat below it from the sterndrive. Which seal kit should I order? I'm guessing the lower seal kit

    water leak in engine compartment

    Hello, I have a 94 2130 with the Yamaha 5.7. Yesterday was the first day having it in the water for the season and I noticed a small amount of water leaking out of the exhaust in the engine compartment. There was also a small rattle coming from the engine exhaust. Any thoughts? thanks in advance
