  1. Newbie here. I bought a 2000 216 ssi last summer. it had 229 hours on it and was immaculate. The only issue I have noticed is that neutral is hard to get to. By that I mean I have to go past neutral into reverse and then bump it to neutral. It really makes docking a pain. When I had it winterized, (Michigan) the mechanic said the cable was too stretched and needed replaced. So I have 2 questions, Is he talking about throttle cable, shift cable or both? And if one and not the other, does it make sense to replace them all anyway? It seemed pretty pricey for a cable replacement. (yes I know what boat stands for) I am pretty handy and have several friends who work on their own boats. So if anyone out there has experienced this or a similar issue I'd love to hear from you and get some feedback as to what might be going on. Luke
  2. Anyone have some advise/tips on winterizing a signature 300? I have an onboard engine heater, so I'm not sure what all I need to winterize. Would like to know if anyone around Nashville area could give me some info on what they do for the winter months. Still plan on taking it out some more this year, but this being my first winter with a boat I don't want to mess it up. Thanks
  3. I noticed last week that my 2003 230ssi 8.1 liter's captains call would not turn back on. When I turn on now, the exhaust gets loud only for a second or two the goes back to quite mode. Anyone have this issue before and where I can start trouble shooting before going to the dealer? Thanks, Jeff
