    Destin Boat Sinking and Rescue Overloaded Boat

    ...easier it is to get the water back OUT of the boat with a deck drain. If I was in the ocean on a regular basis, I would most definitely have a larger, more power bilge as well. Keeping the water on the top side is job #1, and being able to get it back out from the bottom side is a VERY close #2.

    2014 AR210 overheats in-use AND also when flushing

    If that reading was by the Engine thermoswitch, located by Cylinder #1, then it is getting to the upper limit of the sensor. That could be the problem area. Try running at No-wake on hose and see if that area gets over 195.

    Is now (COVID) the WORST time to buy a boat? Seems like demand has skyrocketed

    If you are new to boating, good time to get something "less than ideal" for boat #1, and look to upgrade to Boat #2 in a couple years off the anticipated newer used boat inventory (hopefully summer 2022 if this covid thing finally goes away). Get your sea legs and dumb mistakes out of the way...

    I believe it is the Engine Wire Harness #1, but I am confirming with the dealer now.

    How can we prevent, diagnose, and eliminate overheating problems?

    ...and pulverizes as it dries out, but it is very soft at first. In fact it is visible on all the pictures in Post #1. The fourth picture in Post #1, labelled Some sand-sediment removed from cylinder water jackets.JPG, shows what I chipped out of the cylinder block water jacket after soaking it...

    ...a couple times a month into the line where it starts at the air handler. There are several photos at the beginning of this thread in post #1, they show a substance on the gaskets and the oil cooler cover. It does not appear to be sand, salt, or sediment. It is soft and white or clear like...

    ...hadn’t even heard of that. It tests the integrity of all the seals in each cylinder. Cylinder 2 failed and they thought it might be leaking into #1, but then #1 should be showing some leakage and did not. They decided it had to be a valve issue. The Service Manager told them to cut open the...

    Quick Rejex question.......

For your original post, you should have been doing Step #1, Step #3, and then if you REALLY felt you HAD to, Step #2 would be your last...

    In the market for a ski, new vs. used, SeaDoo vs. Yamaha, etc. etc. EDIT-Found it!!!

    ...a brand new SeaDoo RXT out of the crate for $8190 (sticker was like $12k!). We had a lot of fun with it for one season and then along came baby #1, it got a little use after that but then it stayed stored in my garage for a couple of years as babies #2 and 3 came along and we bought the boat...

    Considering adding a 2nd battery to my SX-230 HO

    ...you say it was an add-on? I can go over later today to see if it is a two position switch (on/off) or 3 position which I assume would be battery #1, battery #2, and off. I understand the current draw and amperage drop from the large wire run if I separate the batteries. After reading your...

    Impeler Shaft Play / Intermediate Bering Condition Verification

    Sure. For #1, when I look at your picture, it looks like you are missing gelcoat on the port and starboard sides of the intake--right there where the hull meets the metal. Not sure why--I don't think I have seen anything like that before. It may be an optical illusion (photography trick?)...

    Impeler Shaft Play / Intermediate Bering Condition Verification

    Truly appreciate your input. Would you mind elaborating a bit more one #1, re-silicone the intake? The impeller does look decent but one can feel that the edges have been wearing some against the housing. The edges do have some bur. Got a ballpark price from local Yamaha store of $600 to rebuild...

    Onboard battery charger question. 2018 242x e-series.

    For question #1, it is whatever the dealer wants to give you. There is nothing set in stone.

    Florida houses with metal roofs

    Rule #1, warranties protect the manufacturer....not the building owner. Lot's of fine print and hoops to jump through to get warranty coverage. Statistically most roofs are replaced by storm damage, aka "acts of God", before the warranty ever kicks in.

    Let's talk WETSOUNDS

    Question I have is where do you want the sound? If it's all about blasting out the back, then go with set up #1, but you'll be lacking sound in the bow. I never did a sound bar and just replaced my cabin speakers with the wetsounds 650's and added an additional pair in the main cabin bringing...

    Really weird issue need help. Engines overheating randomly Yamaha/Dealer says it’s not happening

    On both of my engines, the worst place for the buildup has been in the cylinder block water jackets. The closer it is to cylinder #1, the worse it is. The cooling water intake for the water jackets is located on the opposite end at the bottom of cylinder #4. Regarding flushing: both motors...

    Possible new tow truck ( Tesla )

    ...are completely dead but it’s not going to get you very far. I think the delay with the Tesla truck has to do with a couple of things. #1, they can’t make enough batteries to fill global demand of their current lineup. #2 range while towing and a lack of options in the rural areas where...
