New Owner

Recommended Posts

Hi All, New Chaparral owner, purchased a 2550 SX Signature series and restoring to new condition. Have just about finished with the 454 engine, everything is new except block.Will install in boat as soon as I find an Oil pan for it. Seems that Gen IV 4 bolt main blocks oil pans are hard to come by. Have one on order and hope it fits. Great boat hull with all new interior sitting on dual axle trailer,just waiting on the power.

Welcome to the forum and to Chaparral. We'd love to see photos of your project. I personally love seeing and hearing about project boats brought back to life. Having restored two boats myself, I know the sense of satisfaction you get when you can look at all you've accomplished. I know youl'll get that satisfaction every day you use it. Once again, congratulations. Hy

Welcome to the forum chap2550 . We are glad you are here and believe that you will find answers to a lot of your questions. We also provide some humor, of course at no charge to you other than the initiation fee you paid to join this forum ;)

A few pointers for you to do (if you have not already done so) to help us help you:

1. By clicking on your name in the upper right corner to bring up your options select my profile to add into your signature your location (geographic area).

2. Also under your signature add the type of boat you have and its mechanical systems, such as boat type, engine, drives, etc. This way you don't have to type it into to every post you put up. This will help us help you a lot! Without it, you may not get any answers.

3. Use the Search feature in the top right corner of the forum. There is a lot of good information on this forum that will answer many of your questions. We have a lot of experts here with a large amount of life experience.

4. Take a minute to review our Terms of Service, again right corner. There is good information in there that you will want to know including that we cannot discuss pricing. But read some of our other posts on here to learn the work around for that. ;)

5. We like pictures a lot! So when you get a chance, post some pics of your ride. Read through this thread to learn more about how to do so.

6. Take some time to look through the Help (upper right corner) and > Info Center) located under Chaparral Boats Forum on the main page. From there you will find parts guides, brochures, manuals, specifications, canvas installation manuals, vinyl care information, square gauge setup, weather links, computer desktop backgrounds, etc. Lots of good stuff there for you and your Chaparral!

7. Come back early and often to post. We are a community of friendly and some of us are border-line psychotic. But we admit to it and that's the first step to recovery ;)

Again, welcome to the asylum/forum and we look forward to more from you. Don't be a stranger.
