Hey guys, if you've been following the adventures of our new to us 2330 SS, then you know we've had some issues! Most have been squared away and I got around to replacing my thermostat in our boat. I made a video and the link is below. I found some interesting things along the way, but in the end it was a successful repair. I hope the weather is nice Saturday, as I'm looking forward to a nice lake day and peace of mind knowing that I am certain the boat is cooling correctly! This is my first video editing job, so don't be too harsh on me guys! I'm certainly not Spielberg... LOL... https://youtu.be/dlaudnHo1nc
I have a 2010 Chaparral 284 Sunesta that has relatively low hours (less than 200). The boat is used during the NJ summer months, weekends only. Just got a preventative maintenance notice from the marine center that I am storing my boat at for the first time, so they are new to me. They are suggesting that the following work be done: 1. Replace the engine raw water pump impellers and gaskets 2. Install a new engine thermostat and gasket I checked my service records from my previous marine center and this work has not been done in the past. Before I spend close to on this work, I wanted to request feedback on whether this should be done at this time or whether it's not necessary. I recognize that this is preventative maintenance, but welcome anyone's feedback. Thanks, Hank
