  1. Hi All, new owner of a 2003 183SS. Our boat stays in the water at our dock for the season and currently the bilge float switch is wired through the master; no power to the pump or float switch w/ the battery master off. The pump will operate automatically via the float w/ the master on as well as with the helm switch. I want an automatic bilge pump powered at all times. What are the experts' thoughts and experiences on the two options: 1) Add a second automatic pump tee'd into the existing hose w/ backflow valve (w/ appropriate fuse, etc.). Plusses are redundancy, not cutting
  2. Well, she's here!!! Last Thursday the boat was delivered by my good friend Hatem Gomma, or just Hatem as we all know him here. He did me the favor of a life time and it was such a pleasure to meet him in person and take him out on the test run (and to lunch afterwards ), which I am happy to report was ultimately a success! The value of this board is immense and I can't stress that enough! I actually bought this boat sight unseen through a dealer in Maryland, who was mostly helpful. I had another good friend, Bill Crowell, or Billable Hours inspect the boat for me. Like HG, Bill also did a fa
  3. For the life of me I can't find a stereo housing that will fit my existing dash cut out. The old one is sun-weathered and I want to replace it when I install my new stereo. The face dimensions are about 9" x 4" and the cut out dimensions are about 8" x 2.5". Any idea where I can find one? I've already tried 3 and none worked! Help! LOL! Here is the old one that I need to find an exact replacement for:
  4. Hey guys im new to this forum. I have a 2002 183ss and this summer we were out on the lake and the anchor door latch handle broke and the door was stuck in the closes position. After looking at it for hours trying to pry it open, i was forced to break the latch handle. During this, I chipped the fiberglass and it looks like garbage. I know i can get a fiberglass repair kit but does anyone know where i can get a new door. I attatched pictures off the chaparralboats.com "PARTS IDENTIFICATION GUIDE INDEX" http://forum.chaparr...at/2002/183.pdf It looks like i need #1 (183SS Anchor Lid) Part
  5. I have a 2002 183ss with a Merc 4.3 Yesterday i has spring fever and went out and installed a new radio in my boat. After installing it was dark out but i needed to try it out. Like i said it was dark out and i was rushing, I threw the battery in proceeded to connect the battery cables. I put the negative wire on what i thought was the negative terminal but was really the positive terminal. Still not realizing what i did, i went to attach the positive cable and one it touched the negative battery terminal it sparked almost the same as if you tapped 2 jumper cables together. I saw what i did an

  7. So, yes, I get it... the proper propeller question is probably the most asked question on any boat forum. But... I'm still going to ask it. What good is a boat forum without a virtual cornucopia of screw threads? Everyone loves to ad their 2ยข (I've got a mac, so making the "cents" sign is as easy as pressing option + 2) to the prop threads. First, my current boat specs: Year: 1998 (I was 15 years old when this boat was sold) Make: Chaparral (what else would it be on this forum?) Model: 2130 SS (Limited Edition - I think that got you some faux wood trim, a compass, and a depth sounder... how
