Hey guys - Reasonably new boat owner here (2nd year). Last year the boat was in dry stack all winter. This year, I've upgraded to a covered wet slip on Lake Martin. I have power on the dock, etc. I drive a Chaparral 227SSX. I was considering a bilge heater, but not sure if I realllly needed it. Lake Martin water temp won't go below 32, and the boat is an I/O. So, that means it should have conductive heating of the engine from sitting in the water all the time. I am thinking that unless the Lake had a long stretch of sub-freezing weather, the boat should be ok? Should I drain whatever I can off the block into the bilge anyway after use? Is this something I even need to worry about? Last week, water temp on Martin was 65 degrees. Thanks! Jim
Hi, I'm replacing my water heater (6 Gal), mercruiser 350 with heat exchanger as it is totally corroded and leaks. When unmounting it I realized the red hose was totally clogged. Don't know since when, as I bought the boat last summer. I don't know whether the exchanger uses sea water or is a closed system with coolant ?
I just bought a 2001 Chaparral Signature 300. The AC works great, but neither my marine surveyor or the previous owner knows how to switch the system over to the heater. Apparently there is a sequence of buttons to push on the on/off panel along with the thermostat?? Does anyone know how to do this? Any help or advice would be appreciated.
